The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Regarding Warhol” exhibition opens to the public on Sept. 18, and it promises to be a major event. It will include 45 works by Warhol, arguably the most important postwar contemporary artist, and pieces by some 60 artists that have been influenced by him. Group shows of contemporary art at the Met are exceedingly rare affairs (though that may soon change, given the recent arrival of Sheena Wagstaff from Tate Modern to lead its department for 20th- and 21st-century art), and they are almost unrivaled showcases for artists:  the Met is the second-most-visited museum in the world each year. Being including in a show like “Regarding Warhol,” to put it bluntly, can help raise the profile of even the most established artists, and lead to sales down the line.

Who made the cut for “Regarding Warhol?” The lucky artists are listed below, grouped by their New York galleries. (In cases where two galleries share some aspect of their representation in New York, they were listed under both.) The list reveals that, at least by this admittedly peculiar measure, Gagosian shows the most Warhol-influenced artists, and by a wide margin. The complete results are below.
