Overview

Warhol was an extremely public figure, but a very private person. His guardedness, offset by his desire to place himself in front of the media, has created a confounding situation. While Warhol masterfully presented a honed persona to the world, his façade also drove critics, fans, acquaintances, and perfect strangers to hunt for evidence of his personal life.

Rather than using Warhol's formal surname, his given name hints at heightened familiarity and understanding.
