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.


Julie was not born in Lyon, but she did decide to start her family here! Not that long ago, she would spend most of her evenings out at concerts... Although she has already bought ear defenders for her little 19-month-old boy, so that he can discover the joys of live rock and electronic music (soon!), she is now much more of a morning person as a mother.
