(Until June 15)  This sweeping survey of Warhol’s portraits of women spans the 60’s to the 80’s.  These portraits, from the iconographic Marilyn series to the intensely personal (his mom), show the Master of Pop Art’s attitudes about femininity, beauty, power and celebrity with his trademark wit and insight. The wall of portraits of Jackie Kennedy, pre- and post-assassination, is a narrative of glamour and grief; the tributes to Marilyn Monroe combine adoration and desire; the selections from his Ladies and Gentleman series, which depicted black and Hispanic drag queens scouted in the city’s streets and bars, exults in their defiant freedom. There was so much more to him than soup cans.

Warhol Women will be on view at the gallery through June 15, Tuesday through Saturday, from 10am until 6pm.
