Description


Andy Warhol's Myths, a new series of paintings and silkscreen prints, will be exhibited for the first time at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts Downtown on September 12th. Included are preliminary drawings and trial proofs of the prints.

The myths Warhol presents are well known. Their roots are in ancient beliefs, folklore, allegorical tales, and are based on traditional stories and media creations. They represent fantasies, dreams, hopes and fears.

Included in the series are: Dracula, Howdy Doody, Mammy, Mickey Mouse, Santa Claus, Superman, The Shadow, The Star, The Witch and Uncle Sam. Most of Warhol's myths are derived from photographs he has taken especially for this series.
