Exhibition Poster. Andy Warhol: Marilyn MonroeMunich: Galerie Heiner Friedrich, 1968. Near fine. 22 5/8 x 22 5/8 inches [as framed 24 1/4 x 24 1/4 inches]
Offset on paper, folded as issued.
The announcement poster for an exhibition at Galerie Heiner Friedrich in Munich, which opened January 15, 1968, a few weeks prior to the opening of Warhol's first European museum show at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. The iconic Marilyn image is among Warhol's most recognizable, however the poster is not direct a reproduction of an earlier painting, but a unique rendering of the image. Printed in grayscale on pulpy paper, it has a ghostly silver appearance. Very scarce.
