POP International Galleries is bringing more than 50 works from pop artist Andy Warhol to New York City and offering fans and collectors a chance to buy a Warhol print for just a penny.
The SoHo gallery is working on the exhibit with Revolver Gallery, which has one of the largest print inventories of Warhol artwork. The show, focusing on Warhol’s characterization of iconic celebrities and various popular symbols, runs from Nov. 6 through Jan. 1.
During the exhibit’s run, the galleries are offering a deal letting any one who buys a Warhol work from the show the chance to buy “I Love Your Kiss Forever Forever,” a lithograph from the “1¢ Life” book for a penny, while supplies last.
Works to be featured will include prints of Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, Truman Capote, Mao Zedong and the Campbell’s soup cans. Also featured for sale Warhol’s much-coveted personal Polaroid camera.
“This comprehensive print collection is both an art collector’s dream and an art history lesson,” Jeff Jaffe, owner and founder of POP International Galleries, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to be working with the Revolver Gallery to be able to bring this wonderful body of art to New York City where it belongs.”
Ron Rivlin, owner of Revolver Gallery, said the exhibition is arguably the biggest display of Warhol prints in a gallery setting in the country. Rivlin is also founder of talent management agency Coast II Coast Entertainment.
New York marks the fourth stop for this traveling exhibition of Warhol works, which has visited major metropolitan cities in the last year.
