Self-portraits of Warhol on display in Germany

SHARE Self-portraits of Warhol on display in Germany

A retrospective of Andy Warhol self-portraits spanning decades of the artist's work will go on exhibit this weekend at a museum in western Germany.

The show at the Sprengel Museum in Hanover brings together more than 50 paintings, along with 45 drawings, photographs, collages and films. Some of the portraits have been hung on walls papered with Warhol's image.

The self-portraits "mark the intersection between Andy Warhol, the media figure, and his artistic work," the museum said in a statement Friday. Curator Dietmar Eiger, who prepared the exhibition over the past four years, said Warhol's self-portraits span a 43-year period.
