Andy Warhol’s soup can and Roy Lichtenstein’s comic-inspired work are among the iconic images featured in The Heckscher Museum of Art’s exhibition From Frankenthaler to Warhol: Art of the 60s and 70s, on view from November 18, 2017, through March 11, 2018. The exhibition delves into two trends that defined the art of the times and stretched the definition of fine art: abstract works that explore line, shape and color; and representational art on subjects from popular culture and everyday urban and suburban environments. Color Field, Minimalist, Pop, and Photorealist works speak to the myriad styles that characterized the art world during the dynamic decades of the 60s and 70s. From Frankenthaler to Warhol is sponsored by the Rapaport Shallat Foundation, and Frank Lourenso & Gary Stevens – Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. In addition to artwork from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, the exhibit includes loans from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Universal Limited Art Editions, and Collector Dr. Harvey Manes.
