Andy Warhol - Vesuvius II.365 - Signed Screenprint - 1985

The limited edition screenprint by Andy Warhol Vesuvius II.365 is one of the artist’s most iconic works from the 80s, and it represents Vesuvius, the volcano located in Italy close to Naples.

In Vesuvius, Andy Warhol depicts the erupting volcano: using the bright colors of Pop Art, the composition is charged with energy and shows all the destructive power of the volcano.

Vesuvius II.365 belongs to a limited edition of 250 hand-signed and numbered pieces. Made in 1985, it measures 31.1x39.4 in. The artwork has been published in the catalog F. Feldman, J. Schellmann, "Andy Warhol Prints. A Catalogue Raisonné 1963-1987", 4th Edition at page 150.

Andy Warhol: volcano Vesuvius and the tradition

The artist takes inspiration from Neapolitan Vedutism and landscape paintings, reinterpreting them with the personal Pop Art style of Andy Warhol. Volcano Vesuvius keeps a dialogue with the tradition even with a strong contemporary aesthetic.

Vesuvius II.365 was originally created by the artist as a painting, being part of a portfolio of 18 canvases, 17 of which were exhibited at the Capodimonte Museum in Naples in 1985.

The artist then created a series of limited edition screenprints with the same subject. In the II.365 version of Andy Warhol Vesuvius print, the volcano and the smoke are in red, while the sky is in gray and earthy colors.

The power of nature in Warhol’s art

Nature's destructive power is a key topic in the artist’s production. In 1980 an earthquake destroyed Irpinia, a region of Southern Italy in the province of Avellino, near Naples: following this event Warhol started a collaboration with the Neapolitan gallery owner Lucio Amelio for “Fate presto”, an initiative to sensitize the world to the tragic event.

Andy Warhol created for Amelio a blow-up of the first page of the Italian newspaper Il Mattino, published the day after the catastrophe. Lucio Amelio chose the work as the manifesto for the whole project.

Andy Warhol, Lucio Amelio and Naples

dy Warhol and Lucio Amelio met in 1974 in New York, when the artist painted four portraits of Amelio. The following year, Andy Warhol visited Naples for the first time after Lucio Amelio's invitation and he stayed in the city for three days.

According to Warhol, Naples was the Italian version of New York. He said:

“I love Naples because it reminds me of New York, especially for the many transvestites and garbage on the street. Like New York is a city that is falling apart, and people are happy in spite of everything.”

Andy Warhol was an American artist, film director and photographer, leading figure of Pop Art movement. Born in 1928 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania he changed the art world creating works inspired by Pop and mass culture. Among his masterpieces, Warhol depicted celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, but also everyday objects like the iconic Campbell’s
Soup
, and he made experimental films like Empire.

From a stylistic point of view, he rejected the dominant painting and sculpting techniques and embraced silk-screen printmaking, creating his typical flat areas of color and sharp outlines.

With his New York studio, The Factory, Andy Warhol created a gathering place for artists, intellectuals and celebrities. The scope of his art had a strong influence on other artists such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
