NPG To Go Pop

Andy Warhol - Lemon Marilyn (1960's)The National Portrait Gallery in London is going pop in October for the first time with a UK/USA exhibition Pop Art Portraits, which, judging by Andy Warhol's ghastly portrait of Marilyn Monroe - Lemon Marilyn - promises to be a complete bummer. This stuff looks so old-fashioned and uninspired, because the computer revolution enables anyone to churn it out. One thing that will bring the punters in is a room devoted to Marilyn Monroe. As an iconic sex goddess, she has stood the test of time far better than has Pop Art.
