The exhibition America! Disney, Rockwell, Pollock, Warhol is the first to compare works by these four American artist icons. They all portrayed the "American Way of Life" and shaped the image of America worldwide - in high and popular culture. In total, the show includes around 170 paintings, drawings and graphics. They come from internationally renowned collections such as the Tate, the Stedelijk Museum, the Israel Museum, the Museum Ludwig or the Museum Brandhorst.

Walt Disney, Norman Rockwell, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol were all pioneers in their field of art. They created a picture of the USA, which is still firmly anchored in the visual memory today. Disney breathed pictures into life and made films like Fantasia, Bambi or Sleeping Beauty all generations of children and adults to dream. Norman Rockwell, still relatively unknown in Germany, was the chronicler of America in the first half of the 20th century. His realistic to satirical portrayals of the American "Way of Life" adorned the covers of the most important US newspapers for more than 40 years. With paintings in the drip technique he developed, Jackson Pollock became a star during his lifetime. And in its radicalism, the founder of action painting became arguably the most influential abstract artist of the 20th century. With Andy Warhol, the previously discussed boundary between art and commerce, between "high" and "low" is lifted, his iconic, arbitrarily reproducible lithographs of the American fabric world and his representations of the stars and starlets of Hollywood made him an icon himself.

The exhibition America! Disney, Rockwell, Pollock, Warhol faces these four major protagonists of the visual culture of the United States for the first time. The works on display show how each of them shaped American culture in the 20th century in very different ways. The show brings together paintings, drawings and graphics. The works come from internationally important collections such as the Tate in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne or the Museum Brandhorst in Munich. The work is not only an outstanding example of the popular art of Walt Disney, Norman Rockwell, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol, they also encourage reflection on the distinction between the free arts and cultural industries.
