Andy Warhol's Animal Rights Exhibition in Moscow

Andy Warhol's Animal Rights Exhibition in Moscow

March 18 will see the opening of the famous artist's exhibition at the Darwin Museum in Moscow.

      The series of paintings Endangered Species is dedicated to the rarest animals. Andy Warhol created these works by a very special order in 1983: he was asked for a favour by his friends, animal rights activists, Ronald and Frieda Feldman.

      It is thanks in no small part to Andy Warhol that the Amur tiger, African elephant, orangutan, black rhinoceros, zebra and a panda, bald eagle, bighorn sheep, tree frog and scarce moth have survived - through the art prism the issue was perceived much faster. Under public pressure, these species have become protected.

      The exhibition runs at the Darwin Museum from 18 March till 28 May 2017.
