Created in 1980, the subjects include:
Sarah Bernhardt, Louis Brandeis, Martin Buber, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, George Gershwin, Franz Kafka, the Marx Brothers, Golda Meir and Gerturde Stein.

The importance of Warhol both as a portraitist and 20th century icon is revealed in the artistic accomplishment and the glamour of this portfolio.  As Josh Kornbluth responds to the series in his show running at Theater J, each exhibition visitor has an opportunity to see and respond to Warhol's original works, on display in Washington, again, for the first time in 30 years.

In partnership with Theater J's:
Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews?, a one-man show written and performed by Josh Kornbluth March 6-21.

Kornbluth based his show on the Warhol portraits as a humorous and penetrating take on the ten cultural luminiaries depicted.
