It's one of more than 350 works on display in the largest retrospective of Warhol's prolific career in nearly 30 years.Warhol's deep faith was little-known outside of his tight-knit religious community.The repetition of design and mixed cultural images in Warhol's art feels familiar in a digital age, which he arguably anticipated and foreshadowed.One of Warhol's most important collaborators was Jean-Michael Basquiat, with whom he began working in the 1980s. Basquiat died of a drug overdose in 1988 at age 27, about a year and a half after Warhol died at age 58 of a sudden, postoperative arrhythmia.Warhol's "Superman," 1961, also from a private collection, is a harsh critique of the machismo of abstract expressionist "action" painting.Besides the artworks, which include some of Warhol's films, the exhibition also includes ephemera and scholarship that uncovers new intricacies about the artist we think we understand, while launching a Warhol for the 21st century.
