Andy Warhol: Your views
Marilyn Diptych, 1962
Andy Warhol's images are well known to many
The work of Andy Warhol is the focus of a major exhibition at the Tate Modern in London.

Many of the pop artist's works are instantly recognisable, including the Campbell's Soup Cans and his screen prints of Marilyn Monroe.

"Because these images are so familiar they somehow become less striking," wrote BBC News Online's Keily Oakes.

She added: "But persevere through the gallery and those who do not know how Warhol's artistic career progressed will be amazed at how dark his work became."

But what do you think?

Is some of the impact lost? Does it show a lesser known side of the artist?
