Pop Art artist Andy Warhol, Vesuvius 1985. Acrylic on canvas, 230 x 300 cm. Capodimonte Museum, Naples.
Vesuvius is a symbol of the destructive and generative force of nature. Andy Warhol in his works chose attractive and seductive or distressing and frightening subjects: the image of the Vesuvius it has all these features. The eruption is a shocking image and an extraordinary event and Warhol, as with other works by him, created various versions of Vesuvius in different colors and sizes. This series of works was exhibited in 1985 in a large exhibition dedicated to him by the Capodimonte Museum of Naples. The images chosen by Warhol for his paintings were the symbols and myths of his time: film and music stars, mugshots of wanted people, Coca-Cola and Campbell's soup, car accidents, the electric chair, the dollar, the gun, the Mona Lisa, the atomic bomb, racial clashes, Mao, the formidable enemy of capitalism. Andy Warhol represented these subjects using an effective language, immediate but above all familiar to all social and cultural strata, the visual language of advertising and the mass media, the language of consumerism.
