The philosophy of andy warhol

À propos

The autobiography of an American iconbr>br>''I never think that people die. They just go to department stores''br>br>Andy Warhol - American painter, filmmaker, publisher, actor and major figure in the Pop Art movement - was in many ways a reluctant celebrity. Here, in his autobiography, he spills his secrets and muses about love, sex, food, beauty, fame, work, money, success, New York and America and its place in the world. But it is his reflections on himself, his childhood in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, the explosion of his career in the Sixties and his life among celebrities - from working with Elizabeth Taylor to partying with the Rolling Stones - that give a true insight into the mind of one of the most iconic figures in twentieth-century culture.br>br>Andy Warhol (1928-1987), was an American painter, filmmaker, publisher, actor, and a major figure in the Pop Art movement. He also produced a significant body of film work, including the famous Chelsea Girls; characterised the epoch with the now-famous expression ''fifteen minutes of fame''; produced the first album by The Velvet Underground; and was nearly killed just two days before the assassination of JFK. br>br>If you enjoyed The Philosophy of Andy Warhol, you might like 100 Artists'' Manifestos, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.br>br>''Acute.

Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) est certainement l'un des artistes les plus célèbres de la seconde moitié du XXe siècle. Peintre, dessinateur, cinéaste, il s'imposa rapidement comme le père fondateur du Pop Art. Ses
séries sur la soupe Campbell ou Marilyn Monroe, ainsi que sa personnalité fortement médiatique, l'ont rendu populaire auprès d'un large public.
