Item description for Andy Warhol, Priest: The Last Supper Comes in Small, Medium, and Large by Peter Kattenberg...

This book explores a new interpretation of Andy Warhol's "The Last Supper Series," It brings together two worlds, the sacred and the secular. By showing how the sacred is manifest in advertising, it demonstrates the metaphorical power of popular imagery. Warhol bore out the proposition that an artist is essentially a "Yours faithfully." The essence of his Last Supper series lies in the mystery that should remain so: 'mirari non rimari sapientia vera est'. To scrutinize the host would be unfaithful to Christ, who said: "This is my Body." To perceive Warhol's work as simply signifying itself would be unfaithful to America's most influential artist. A case in point is "The Last Supper (Dove)": pictorial analysis proves that Leonardo's "Il Cenacolo" was not robbed of its sublimity. Warhol remained faithful to it as a means of unveiling the holy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Andy Warhol, Priest: The Last Supper Comes in Small, Medium, and Large?

Interesting for Analysis, Near Unreadable for Writing  Mar 31, 2009
Check out a free copy of this work before you purchase it if you can. Either online via a major search engine or in a library of some sorts. There is good information to be had from the book, but damn if it isn't hidden under poor composition and redundancy.
