Basel Buzz: Fendi Casa Plans Warhol Party
November 14, 2012 | Homepage
Ingrid Bergman with Hat, by Andy Warhol
On day one of Art Basel Miami Beach (December 6), Fendi Casa Luxury Living Showroom will debut an exhibit with some of Andy Warhol's most famous works. Among the pieces on view will be the iconic Ingrid Bergman with Hat, Jane Fonda, and Blackglama (Judy Garland). The pop portraits will share space with Warhol’s versions of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus (simply titled Venus by Warhol) and Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation. Warhol began reinterpreting Renaissance masterpieces in the early 1980s for a series he called “Details of Renaissance.”
To debut the Warhol works, Fendi Casa president Raffaella Vignatelli will host an unveiling party (8–11 p.m.) complete with gratis Atlántico Rum cocktails. The collection will remain on display for two weeks, at which point it will move to Adamar Fine Arts for public view (and purchase!) through January 6, 2013. 90 N.E. 39th St., Miami
