ANDY WARHOL AND SUNDAY B. MORNING: EXHIBITION AND SALE
June 17 - 30th, 2022
June 17th, 2022 from 4 – 6 PM
Masters Gallery is pleased to present Andy Warhol & Sunday B. Morning, an exhibition and sale of works by history’s most famous Pop artist and the company once authorized to reproduce his work.
Andy Warhol became a leading figure of art amidst a transformative period of culture in mid-century New York. His iconic work examined pop-culture, sexuality, celebrity and more, and his career shifted our cultural understanding of art itself. Sunday B. Morning began as a collaboration between Andy Warhol and two Belgian friends to produce his silkscreen prints. Warhol gave them his original photo negatives and colour codes, and in 1970 they produced a first edition suite of 250 prints. Sunday B Morning has become synonymous with Warhol’s name and the 1970 editions are noted in the Warhol Catalogue Raisonné with some selling for tens of thousands at auction. As if a victim to his own success in bringing art to the masses, Warhol later regretted this decision and tried to stop the production but failed. He even signed many of the first editions “this is not me. Andy Warhol.”, which only served to make the prints more valuable. The and the company continues to produce the highest quality silkscreens of Warhol’s work to this day.
The exhibition will run from June 17 – 30, 2022 with an opening on Friday, June 17th from 4 – 6 PM at Masters Gallery.
10% of all sales of Sunday B. Morning prints will go to Contemporary Calgary for the duration of the show
