FORTY works by Andy Warhol have been donated to the collection dedicated to the artist at the Museum of Modern Art in Medzilaborce. Twenty-eight of them came from an entrepreneur of Slovak origin, the SITA newswire wrote.

Martin Cubjak, the museum’s curator, estimates the works are worth Sk60-70 million.

The works have arrived in Medzilaborce and are being framed. They will be officially unveiled and added to the collection at the end of June and beginning of July.

The Museum of Modern Art in Medzilaborce, the only museum in Europe devoted to the “king of pop art”, opened in 1991 with 12 works. It now has about 200 pieces by Warhol, whose parents were born in the nearby village of Miková. The pieces include some of his screenprints and prints and works by his brother, Paul Warhola. Other exhibits include some of the Warhol family’s personal items.

The museum is planning four projects abroad this year. In August, an exhibition of Warhol’s works, including Red Lenin and Hammer and Sickle, takes place in Moscow. And at the end of the year, other works will be exhibited in Romania, Turkey, and Germany.
