Critical Review

Warhol’s Joseph Beuys in Memoriam (F. & S. II.371) comes from the larger series Joseph Beuys. An influential theorist and performance artist, Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) spent the majority of his career in Europe, where his fame was concentrated. Even so, Beuys’ fame spread across the Atlantic where he held a retrospective at the Guggenheim museum in 1979. Despite being some of the biggest names in the postwar art world, the two only met a handful of times. Warhol’s production of this image postmortem indicates that infrequent meetings did not diminish the recognition and mutual admiration between the two artists.
