Andy Warhol’s Religious Side




At Killing the Buddha, Becky Garrison tells us about an exhibit of Andy Warhol’s last works at the Brooklyn Museum, which has four paintings from his “Last Supper” series (more than 100 depictions in all, based on Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”).
According to the museum:

These paintings manifest both his religious beliefs—his practice of Catholicism remained private until it was revealed at his funeral—and an irreverence toward the subject, expressed through ironic commercial logos and transgressive repetitions of Christ’s image.
