This is Warhol
'Succinct and inexpensive, these short but lovely-looking books explain complicated ideas and histories with wit and great cunning' - The Guardian
A second hand copy of the beautiful and succinct graphic novel exploring Warhol’s life and times
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 Warhol's art from his beginnings as a commercial artist to his apotheosis as a society portrait painter.
Vivid illustrations reveal Andy's worlds: his childhood in Pittsburgh, his chaotic Manhattan mansion and the Silver Factory, where New York's 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.
