Born Marisol Escobar in 1930, Marisol left California in 1949 to study art in Paris. A contemporary of Andy Warhol, Marisol was part of the movement that developed pop art culture. During the ‘60s, she became internationally famous for her sculptures of well-known personalities and her exploration of self-portraits. “The Wedding,” in which Marisol appears as both bride and groom, and “Dinner Date,” in which two Marisols share TV dinners, received much commentary and praise. Her greatest pieces include a monument to lost seamen, which stands on the breakwater of Manhattan as well as “The Last Supper,” which was purchased for $300,000 and donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
