More than 100 works made by Andy Warhol in the last years and months of his life, and never before exhibited, will be among the stars of next year’s –(2016) exhibitions at the Ashmolean museum in Oxford.
 
The Warhols, all on loan from a vast private collection, include his screenprint portraits of fellow artist Joseph Beuys, made after the two giants (but seemingly dissimilar figures) of postwar art finally met in 1979 – and got on very well.
 













 



“They were the two artists who were more than artists – they became symbols of their age,” said Sir Norman Rosenthal, former head of exhibitions at the Royal Academy, who is curating the show.
 
The Warhols normally hang in the US home of Christine and Andrew Hall, an Oxford graduate who moved to the States where he became a multimillionaire businessman and collector. The Halls particularly love Warhol, and their loans will range from very early work to his last before his death in 1987 – a screenprint eerily titled “heaven and hell are just one breath away!”
