Among the swanky invitation-only soirees held in Miami during early December will be an exhibit of works by Andy Warhol focused on iconic female subjects---from Marilyn to Jackie O. The exhibition debuts at the 11th edition of Art Basel Miami Beach on Thursday, December 6th beginning at 8:00 p.m. at the Luxury Living – FENDI Casa Showroom.

The exhibit, a collaboration with Adamar Fine Arts Gallery, will showcase an array of Warhol’s greatest masterpieces, curated to depict diverse and fascinating notable women throughout history and mythology.

On display will be a selection of Warhol’s most recognized pieces including Ingrid Bergman with Hat, Karen Kain, Jane Fonda, Marilyn, Jackie I and Blackglamma (Judy Garland), along with two of his most prominent works Venus and Annunciation.

Both Venus and Annunciation are inspired by historic Italian works interpreted and recreated by Warhol. Venus, known as one of Warhol's most iconic and glamorous paintings, is part of his "Details of Renaissance" series, which was created in 1982 when Warhol painted his first pieces inspired by historical works of art. The painting is based on details of Sandro Botticelli's Birth of Venus, which is in the Uffizi Palace in Florence, Italy. Annunciation is Warhol’s analysis of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Annunciation” which depicts the story of the appearance of the Angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary and his message to her. Warhol’s passion for recreating masterpieces from the Italian Renaissance resonates well with the Italian identity of the FENDI Casa brand. 

Together with Mrs. Raffaella Vignatelli and Elle Décor, Luxury Living - FENDI Casa and Adamar Fine Arts Gallery aim to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience for the invited guests.
