Well-known for his series of colourful portraits of celebrities, such as Marylin Monroe, and famous paintings such as the Campbell’s Soup Cans, the artist often placed his art in the service of advertising. Thanks to the Quebec-based art collector Paul Maréchal and his impressive private collection, the exhibition offers a chance to discover numerous works intended to be ephemeral, ranging from packing paper, theatre programmes, posters, shopping bags, clothes and post cards – all exclusive creations made in limited series. An opportunity to become better acquainted with Warhol’s graphic world and leave the museum with plenty of new images in your mind.
