Andy Warhol, Hardback Book


King of Pop Art Andy Warhol is one of the greatest artists of all time.

Rarely venturing into public without his camera and tape recorder, Warhol was a great observer and documentarist of the American social scene. Somewhere within the iconic images, carefully-made personae, star-studded milieu, million-dollar price tags and famous quotes lies the real Andy Warhol.

But who was he?With Andy Warhol,Robert Shore unfolds the multi-dimensional Warhol, dissecting his existence as undisputed art-world hotshot, recreating the amazing circle that surrounded him, and tracing his path to stardom back through his early career and his awkward and unusual youth.

After Warhol, nothing would be the same - he changed art forever.

Find out how with his remarkable story. 'Lives of the Artists' is a new series of brief artists biographies from Laurence King Publishing.

The series takes as its inspiration Giorgio Vasari's five-hundred-year-old masterwork, updating it with modern takes on the lives of key artists past and present.

Focusing on the life of the artist rather than examining their work, each book also includes key images illustrating the artist's life.
