Andy Warhol

Front Cover
Prestel, 2007 - Art - 128 pages
The author looks at the world Warhol inhabited as a young man - a post-war America on the brink of mass commercialism and mass production - to examine his iconic paintings and prints. She demonstrates how Warhol's fascination with pop culture meshed perfectly with a cultural mood, at once reflective and rebellious. The innovative layout allows the artist's brilliantly coloured prints and paintings to spring to life, while photographs from Warhol's life in and out of the limelight offer a balanced appreciation of an artist who taught his audience how to appreciate his art.
