MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Jewish Museum Milwaukee is hosting a display of large silkscreen portraits by Andy Warhol.

It's called "Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century" and will be on display through March 30, 2014.

The silkscreens feature Sarah Bernhardt, Louis Brandeis, Martin Buber, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, George Gershwin, Franz Kafka, the Marx Brothers, Golda Meir and Gertrude Stein.

The exhibit was first shown at the Jewish Center of Washington in Bethesda, Maryland in 1980.

Originally published as a portfolio of silkscreen prints on paper, Warhol was so pleased with its commercial success that he created additional versions of the series as silkscreen paintings on canvas.
