“Warhol and the West” presents the full range of Western imagery Warhol produced. New scholarship examines how Warhol’s Western work merges the artist’s ubiquitous portrayal of celebrities with his interest in cowboys, American Indians and other western motifs. His work in the Western genre is immediately recognizable, impressive, daring, inspirational and sometimes confrontational. This body of work furthers our understanding of how the American West infiltrates the public’s imagination through contemporary art and popular culture.
