More than 40 works by the American painter Andy Warhol are set to go on free public display in Scotland for the first time.

The paintings and prints exploring power and politics will be housed at the Scottish Parliament from October 4 to November 3.

Warhol's Pop Art portraits of John F Kennedy, Mao Tse-tung and the Queen are being donated by the artist's museum in Pittsburgh and will be hung at Holyrood alongside a portrayal of Scottish philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who made his fortune in the US.
