For the first time on record, the Cincinnati Art Museum brings together Andy Warhol’s three known paintings of baseball players, each of whom rose to the level of pop celebrity during his lifetime. Discover these consummate examples of Pop portraiture by a seminal figure in the Pop Art movement. The exhibition will feature the Cincinnati Art Museum’s 1985 painting of Cincinnati Reds player-manager, Pete Rose, commissioned in anticipation of Rose breaking Ty Cobb’s record of 4,191 hits. The painting will be joined by Baseball, 1962, on loan from the Nelson-Atkins Museum, portraying Roger Maris, and the 1977 portrait of Tom Seaver, who pitched his only no hitter as a member of the Cincinnati Reds, lent by the Andy Warhol Museum. In addition learn how Warhol worked through progressive proofs for the limited-edition screen print of Pete Rose and see a historic selection of commercial graphics and baseball cards which inspired the composition.
