Overview

Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro and Andy Warhol each significantly shaped the development of art in the twentieth century. These Modern masters are the subjects of four small books, the first volumes in a series featuring important artists in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Each book presents a single artist and guides readers through a dozen of his most memorable achievements. Works are reproduced in color and accompanied by informative and accessible short essays that provide background on the artworks and on the artist himself, illuminating technique, style, subject matter and significance. Written by Carolyn Lanchner, former Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum, these books are excellent resources for readers interested in the stories behind masterpieces of the Modern canon and for those who wish to understand the contributions of individual artists to the history of Modern art. This volume focuses on Warhol.

Meet the Author

Andy Warhol was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1928. In 1949, after attending the School of Fine Arts at what is now Carnegie Mellon University, he moved to New York City where he embarked on a successful career as a commercial illustrator. It was in the 1960s that he began his iconic Campbell's Soup paintings, and honed his trademark deadpan persona. Throughout the 1960s and 70s, Warhol created silkscreen paintings, sculptures and films, promoted the fledgling rock band, The Velvet Underground, and produced Interview magazine. After surviving a gunshot wound inflicted by the infamous Valerie Solanis in 1968, Warhol died during a routine gallbladder operation in 1987.

    GREAT BOOK

    This book is a must have for any warhol fan. Full of COLOUR photos of Items in one of his many time capsule boxes. You wont be out of the loop with obscure envelopes and such. Reference #s take you to the back of the book with a description written by the people @ the Warhol Museum.
