The Museum Fredericianum is concluding its 1994 season with two parallel exhibitions. The first is dedicated to European painting from the Renaissance to the Baroque, and presents 120 works from the collections of the Castle of Wilhelmshöhe; the second, organised along thematic lines, illustrates the works of Andy Warhol which recapture famous masterpieces. Highlights of the first exhibition are Rembrandt’s “Saskia” and “Jacob blessing the sons of Joseph”; Rubens’s “Triumph of the Victorious” and “Nicholas de Respaigne”, and Titian’s “Italian General”, in a selection that includes works by Frans Hals, Dürer, Cranach, Poussin, Tintoretto and Bellucci. The second show is entitled “Andy Warhol: Art from Art: the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper by Leonardo and other masterpieces”. It consists of two huge pieces by Warhol after these renowned paintings, as well as works after Botticelli and Uccello, Picasso, Matisse and Munch. Over eighty screen-prints, designs and collages illustrate the Pop artist’s vision of the works of the past.
