Item description for Andy Warhol and His World by Lise Kaiser Katrine Molstrom...
The life and work of Andy Warhol are interconnected in a manner unlike any other artist. One of the preeminent depicters of the society of the spectacle, Warhol became a spectacle unto himself, hobnobbing with celebrities and creating an ongoing hipster scene around his image. As his work has continues to grow in popularity, and critical positions on him proliferate, the depth and ambiguity of his oeuvre becomes clearer, and scholars and audiences alike now see Warhol for the prophetic visionary he was. Andy Warhol and His World presents an amazing selection of Warhol's work from throughout his career--from his early Brillo boxes and silkscreens of auto accidents and electric chairs, to his ''portraits'' of Elvis, Marilyn, Liz, Mao, and Queen Elizabeth II, to film stills and self-portraits--as well as extensive essays on Warhol and the world he reflected and created. What emerges is an artist who addressed death and mortality as much as he did commodity fetishism and celebrity.
