Donald Sheridan | Homage to Andy Warhol
41-43 Maddox Street, London, W1S 2PD UK
Shapero Modern is pleased to announce London’s first solo exhibition of American artist Donald M. Sheridan.
There is no smile more iconic than that belonging to Leonardo Da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’. Donald M. Sheridan’s exhibition Homage to Andy Warhol is not only a great tribute to the Pop artist himself but to the Renaissance Period. Since her creation in 1503, the ‘Mona Lisa’ has transcended her status as a masterful oil on canvas to that of the ultimate pop icon. With her image proliferated across the globe on clothing, posters, magazine covers and used in advertisements and films, she is a symbol of the fusion of high-art and consumerism.
Thirty-five years ago, in 1987, Andy Warhol launched his homage to the Renaissance Master Leonardo Da Vinci at Milan’s Palazzo Delle Stelline: Warhol—Il Cenacolo. In the last decade of his life, Warhol created over 100 paintings and prints of Leonardo Da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’, highlighting the sheer scale of the original fresco’s image proliferation worldwide.
‘I learned everything I know from him… if it weren’t for Andy, I’d be a psychiatrist. Making art is a different kind of psychiatry I guess.’ – Donald M. Sheridan
