Front Cover
Joseph D. Ketner, II
Milwaukee Art Museum, 2009 - Art - 223 pages
In the last decade before his death in 1987, Warhol continued to produce mesmerizing works at an astounding pace. Influenced by the most prominent artists of the 1980s, including Basquiat, Haring, Schnabel, and Clemente, Warhol experimented with a combination of painting and screen printing to develop an extraordinary vocabulary of images that traversed a variety of genres. The result is a remarkable output, collected here in this companion to a touring exhibition organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum. This catalogue delves into the range of works Warhol was creating during his last years, including abstract paintings, collaborations, and his final self-portraits. Essays by Keith Hartley and Gregory Volk and contributions by Bruno Bischofberger, Keith Haring, and Julian Schnabel round out this compelling look at an artist whose most fecund work may have been produced in his last years.

He came to prominence in the 1980s New York art scene as a leading figure of the Neoexpressionist movement, and has ever since been a figure of immense controversy and respect. Schnabel has directed three feature films, "Basquiat, Before Night Falls" and the 2007 Cannes Film Festival favorite, "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly".
