Warhol's Jews: Ten Portraits Reconsidered


Andy Warhol is widely recognized as one of the most significant artists of the late twentieth century, and Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century is, arguably, among his most important paintings.

A pantheon of great thinkers, politicians, performers, musicians and writers, Warhol's great sequence of portraits of 'Jewish geniuses' touches every aspect of human experience: Sarah Bernhardt; Louis Brandeis; Martin Buber; Albert Einstein; Sigmund Freud; the Marx Brothers; Golda Meir; George Gershwin; Franz Kafka, and Gertrude Stein.

The Skirball collection includes all ten of these portraits, which were last exhibited as a group in 2018.
