Warhol in Naples

The Andy Warhol exhibition ‘Storefronts’ continues at the PAN | Palazzo delle Arti Napoli.

Films, portraits, soup cans, Marilyn Monroe, record covers, magazine, photographs of Naples prostitutes and of course the famous series of works on Vesuvius.  He said:

‘For me, the eruption is a shocking event, an extraordinary event and also a great piece of sculpture … Vesuvius for me is much bigger than a myth: it is a very real thing’.

The Vesuvius series in various colour schemes are all in one room at the end of the exhibition; the photo above is the only one I managed before the guard stopped me.
