Andy Warhol (1928-1987) made a great impact on the world of art, heralding a fundamental transformation in our visual awareness of the mediated image. In his quest for fame and fortune, Warhol fashiobed himself into a media superstar. This illustrated survey spans the entire gamut of Warhol's art, from his beginning as a commercial illustrator in the 1950s, his period as a Pop star in the 1960s, through his phase as a society portrait painter in the 1970s, to his concluding decade when he drew together many of the techniques he has practised in an astounidg tour de force of artistic innovation and productivity. Examining the changeful scene at Warhol's studio - the famous Factory - as well as his forays into film and multimedia "happenings", this book is the perfect introduction to the life and work of this epachal artist.
