Sharing Warhol's roots in a Pittsburgh Carpatho-Rusyn community, Hebenick (philosophy, U. of Dayton, Ohio) pays tribute on the 10th anniversary of the pop artist's death to his work and their heritage rooted in NE Slovakia, Ukraine, and Poland. In four studies (ethnographic, biographical, autobiographical, and aesthetic), the author traces the style of the creator of pop icons like silk-screened Campbell's soup cans and Marilyn Monroe images to the religiously-based folk art of Easter egg decorating (pysanky) and the sacred icons of the Greek Orthodox church. The only art appears on the cover and is traditional, not that of Warhol. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
