Andy Warhol (b. 06.08.1928 in Pittsburgh, d. 22.02.1987 in New York) was uniquely able to combine opposites, change the world of art and with Pop Art create a new, independent style.
A constant characteristic of Warhol´s works was their serial reproduction, the creation and production of the same things over and over. His serial portraits of famous personalities such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Mao or the reproductions of the Campbell´s soup can became world famous. The »Gems« on display at Crystal Worlds are also a part of Warhol´s »Iconography of the Everyday«.
