Summary

Summary

Best known for his screen prints of soup cans and movie stars, this shy young boy from Pittsburgh shot to fame with his radical ideas of what "art" could be. Working in the aptly named "Factory," Warhol's paintings, movies, and eccentric lifestyle blurred the lines between pop culture and art, ushering in the Pop Art movement and, with it, a national obsession. Who Was Andy Warhol? tells the story of an enigmatic man who grew into a cultural icon.


Author Notes

Kirsten Anderson is a freelance writer and actress who lives in New York City with her charming Pomeranian, Sunflower.


Excerpts

Excerpts

In July 1962, a new art exhibit opened at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. When people walked into the gallery, they saw thirty-two paintings lined up on a shelf. They were paintings of cans of Campbell's soup. Each painting showed a different flavor of soup.
