Andy Warhol, Paperback / softback Book

Andy Warhol Paperback / softback

Part of the Lives series

Paperback / softback


'Properly analytical ... always entertaining' TIME OUT'Should tempt both those generally familiar with Andy Warhol and, even more, young people who have trouble imagining how popular art can challenge the status quo' L A TIMESPainter, filmmaker, photographer, philosopher, all-round celebrity, Andy Warhol is an outstanding cultural icon.

He revolutionised art by bringing to it images from popular culture - such as the Campbell's soup can and Marilyn Monroe's face - while his studio, the Factory, where his free-spirited cast of 'superstars' mingled with the rich and famous, became the place of origin for every groundswell shaping American culture. In many ways he can be seen as the precursor to today's 'celebrity artists' such as Tracey Emin and Damian Hirst.

But what of the man behind the white wig and dark glasses?

Koestenbaum gives a fascinating, revealing and thought-provoking picture of pop art's greatest icon.
