The Milwaukee Art Museum is currently showing “Warhol’s Last Decade”, an appropriately named exhibition showcasing Andy Warhol’s later work. Known as the most experimental and risky work of his career, he introduced abstraction into his work with series such as “Oxidation Paintings, Shadows, Yarn, Rorschachs, Camouflage; produced his signature “fright wig” self-portraits; and revealed his Catholicism in Black and White Ads and the ambitious series based on Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper.”

During this late period, Warhol was influenced greatly by his collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat, leading to him moving away from his “factory” and more towards works by hand. Take a look at this video with Dan Keegan (director of the MAM) introducing the exhibition and make sure to stop by if you are in the area to check out the show before it moves on for a tour nationally when it closes in Milwaukee on Jan 3rd.
