Andy Warhol: Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century

No one could turn Campbell’s Soup Cans into icons of modern art like Andy Warhol. Much of Warhol’s work plays with the theme of the mass media’s mass production. With his infamous “Brillo Boxes,” Warhol starkly contrasted the singularity of the work of art with the disposability of product packaging. But it is for his portraits of cultural aristocracy that the artist is best known. Through the end of March, the Jewish Museum Milwaukee presents “Andy Warhol: Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century.” Instead of Marilyn and Mao, viewers will have the rare opportunity to see Warhol’s renderings of the Marx Brothers, Franz Kafka, Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud, among others.
