Day-off trip to Roslin Glen saw us on a very genteel meander along the river and woodland.
The show is a collaboration between the Parliament, Carnegie UK Trust and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and presents a selection of Andy's work within the political sphere. Sometimes the connection is a touch tenuous, but all the images are fascinating and well selected, mainly from the collection in Pittsburgh.
I was fascintated by many of the portraits of queens, leaders and politicians; of particular interest to me was this pencil image of Mao, as Warhol's original drawings don't often appear in exhibitions. His series of images and words portraying the Kennedy assassination, carried out in the wake of his own shooting, were another highlight, if very hard to photograph!
Viewing slots need to be booked although the exhibition is free to view.
