Andy Warhol I

 The Baker Museum just opened an exhibition of works by Andy Warhol.  Many of the works are on loan from Bank of America's collection.

Warhol became well known for his large silkscreens of Campbell Soup cans.

A tour and lecture about the Warhol exhibition were taking place while I was there.  (I didn't take the tour.)

An excellent series in the Bank of America collection is Warhol's Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century, 1980.   Clockwise from top left: Franz Kafka, Gertrude Stein, Martin Buber, Albert Einstein, Louis Brandeis, Sigmund Freud, Sarah Bernhardt, Golda Meir, The Marx Brothers and George Gershwin.  

See how Gershwin keeps popping up?

There was a big scam here a few years ago with Warhol prints. I recogniced Kafka first on your photo.
