Overview

The Prince of Pop, Andy Warhol created the most sensational art of the 1960s. He took snapshots of Marilyn Monroe, Coca Cola bottles, and dollar bills, and transformed them into radical works of art through the simple act of reproduction, silkscreening his paintings by the yard! Yet despite his fame, Warhol remains an enigmatic figure: Was he a glamorous decadent, exploiting the sex and drug subcultures? Or was he the most brilliant social commentator of his day?
