This catalogue presents Warhol as one of the most significant and influential artists of the second half of the twentieth century. Tracing his artistic evolution, it shows how his work reflected and commented on themes in American society that were also international: consumerism; mass-production; celebrity; disaster and death. He had an unerring eye for the iconic images which captured these themes at that time: Coca Cola; Marilyn; Elvis; the electric chair; the crashed car; the race riot and the atomic bomb. His openness to subject matter was matched by a willingness to explore all media resulting in his innovative approach to painting, as well as film, video, photography, drawing and printmaking.
In the four essays which precede the plates, distinguished Warhol scholars probe the psychology, artistic intent and technique of this enigmatic artist.
