From the Publisher. With his tomato soup cans, silk-screened disasters, and matter-of-fact commercialism, Andy Warhol (born 1928) helped create the Pop art ethos. Warhol's life-long infatuation with glamour and the media provided the touchstone for all his work, from his earliest shoe advertisements to the most recent celebrity portraits, all of which can be seen here. With informative, enjoyable texts and over 100 illustrations—approximately 48 in full color—the innovative Modern Masters series offers a fresh look at the most creative and influential artists of the postwar era. Each handsomely designed volume presents a thorough survey of the artists life and work, as well as statements by the artist, an illustrated chapter on technique, a chronology, lists of exhibitions and public collections, an annotated bibliography, and an index.
