About the Book
The definitive biography of a fascinating and paradoxical figure, one of the most influential artists of his—or any—age.
To this day, mention the name “Andy Warhol” to almost anyone and you’ll hear about his famous images of soup cans and Marilyn Monroe. But though Pop Art became synonymous with Warhol’s name and dominated the public’s image of him, his life and work are infinitely more complex and multifaceted than that.
In WARHOL, esteemed art critic Blake Gopnik takes on Andy Warhol in all his depth and dimensions. Wide-ranging and immersive, WARHOL gives us the most robust and intricate picture to date of a man and an artist who consistently defied easy categorization and whose life and work continue to profoundly affect our culture and society today.
