The Editions exhibition will feature one of the most well-recognized works by Andy Warhol: 'Marilyn', depicting Marilyn Monroe in the artist's typical bright palette. Visitors will have a chance to witness a rare work by Salvador Dali, Inferno, which as the name hints is connected with Dante's Divine Comedy. Those interested in abstract art will be glad to see a composition by Wassily Kandinsky. A master of naïve art and modernism Marc Chagall will be presented at the exhibition as well.
