This month SFAI will exhibit a curated selection of original Andy Warhol Polaroid photographs, gelatin silver prints, and screen prints gifted by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

For the first time seven original screen prints alongside 40 of the Polaroids and six of the photographic prints the school now holds in this compelling archive will be on display. The screen prints include The Nun, Ingrid Bergman (1983), Annie Oakley (1986), and Joseph Beuys in Memoriam (1986). The photographs include nudes, painting ideas, celebrity snapshots, still lifes, and outdoor scenes showing the range of Warhol’s aesthetic in this rare glimpse into a medium that was largely used as source material for his legendary work.
