De Warhol's zijn terug

Actualiteit ~ donderdag 3 februari 2022

U kunt deze prachtige portretten van Hergé opnieuw bewonderen in zaal 8 van het Hergé Museum.

The portrait series was separated in: one painting that was in Lisbon for the Hergé exhibition and the other one travelled to Shanghai for the Tintin and Hergé exhibition.

In 1972, Hergé met Warhol for the first time. Tintin's father went to the "Factory," the artist’s studio the painter had opened in New York in 1964. The two artists realized that they had much in common: they began their careers in advertising and marketing illustration and built their careers on central works that established themselves as real cultural phenoms.

In the 1970s, Hergé commissioned the king of pop art to paint his portrait, after which Warhol presented a series of images in his familiar style. The two artists met each other again at an exhibition in Brussels, at le Palais des Beaux-Arts, with the theme "American Art from 1945 to the Present." It was an opportunity for the two stars to meet again, exchange their ideas, and most importantly, exhibit one of their greatest collaborations: Andy Warhol's portrait of Hergé.
