Product description

Andy Warhol, the iconic Pop artist, presented himself as the vacuous, dumb kid, famously saying, 'If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and there I am. There's nothing behind it.' This book penetrates the surface and explores Warhols art from his beginnings as a commercial artist to his apotheosis as a society portrait painter. Vivid illustrations reveal Andys worlds: his childhood in Pittsburgh, his chaotic Manhattan mansion and the Silver Factory, where New Yorks bright new things hung out and had fun. Series writer Catherine Ingram brings her extensive knowledge to the book, while specially commissioned illustrations by Andrew Rae vividly portray the text.
