Warhol doesn't need burnishing

September 15, 2010

Although ''A Casting Call For Warhols'' (Sept. 14) calls the late artist shallow, the article itself is hardly profound. It focuses on Andy Warhol's lack of communication in public, forgetting this was how he encouraged others to open up about their personal and professional lives.

It also ignores the fact that the painter's works routinely sell for millions at auction, and that he is already the permanent subject of a museum in Pittsburgh.

So I doubt that the Baltimore Museum of Art's upcoming Warhol display will ''burnish his reputation.''
