Opening Reception | Richard Bernstein: Fame: New York's Celebrity Culture


“Cover Designed and Painted by Richard Bernstein” was written on the masthead of almost every issue of Andy Warhol’s Interview from 1972 to 1989. Many people assumed that Interview’s distinctive covers were painted by Warhol himself. Warhol thought Bernstein could do it better and was quoted as saying that Richard Bernstein was “his favorite artist.” Bernstein designed and painted 189 covers during his seventeen years with Interview. His images helped to define the new uptown/downtown celebrity culture that characterized this dynamic period in New York’s history. The exhibition will feature sixty original cover paintings for Interview and a selection of Bernstein’s lesser-known early and later works.
