Andy Warhol by Brant Foundation is a rare opportunity for the public to be able to see one of the most important groups of works by the artist father of American Pop Art, collected not by a simple collector, but a character, Peter Brant, a close friend of Warhol, with whom he shared the years artistically and culturally vibrant New York in the 60’s and 70’s. Warhol was only twenty years old in 1967 Peter Brant bought his first work of Warhol, a drawing of the famous Campbell‘s Soup, starting what would become one of the most important contemporary art collections in the world.

Through masterpieces and works by lesser-known but equally amazing, as a series of Polaroid never seen before in Europe, the exhibition tells the Brant Foundation is not just the star of Warhol’s art world and the market but also the intimate Warhol, friend, the man.
