Volcano Artwork – Willow Class

We have been looking at the picture Mount Vesuvius by Andy Warhol.

Showing Vesuvius erupting in a violent and dramatic explosion, Warhol saw Vesuvius for its fiery energy of past.  Andy Warhol left his beloved photographic pictures to experiment something different for the first time in 1985, when he created the series ‘Vesuvius by Warhol’, 18 paintings that the artist dedicated to the Italian volcano.

The American pop-art icon portrayed the volcano in the ‘catastrophic’ act of eruption, which is immortalized at different hours of the day, from dawn to sunset.

We have created our own versions using pastels and computer art.
