Reseña del editor
Andy Warhol, the iconic Pop artist, presented himself as the vacuous, dumb kid, famously saying, 'If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings…and there I am. There's nothing behind it.' This book penetrates the surface and explores Warhol’s art from his beginnings as a commercial artist to his apotheosis as a society portrait painter. Vivid illustrations reveal Andy’s worlds: his childhood in Pittsburgh, his chaotic Manhattan mansion and the Silver Factory, where New York’s bright new things hung out and had fun. Series writer Catherine Ingram brings her extensive knowledge to the book, while specially commissioned illustrations by Andrew Rae vividly portray the text.Ver Descripción del producto

This is apparently the first in a series of “This is …“ books,. The first three volumes (Warhol, Dali and Pollock) have text by British art historian Catherine Ingram. The books are compact – 80 pages each – with 50 color images in each. There are sturdy pasteboard covers holding the contents. About one- third text, one-third repros of the artist’s work and a final third with new illustrations (in the style of a graphic novel), the books (well, based on the Warhol one I got and read) cover the artists life with enough prime info to be able to discuss the artist in conversation, and maybe seek out more info,. The Warhol book has a lengthy Bibliography.
I was familiar with many of the Warhol art that is shown in this volume but the text – each section covering a period in his life ( early schooling, college, his New York and Hollywood periods and his death) – fleshed out some more facts for me. Had I only known that he painted repeating pictures of Marilyn Monroe and Campbell’s soup cans, I would have felt that I learned a lot from this moderately priced book. It’s a nice way to introduce artists to a younger generation who seek out “graphic novels”.
I can certainly recommend it and am looking forward to some of the other titles in this series and other books from Mr. King’s imprint.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
The youngest of three boys growing up in Pittsburgh as a migrant family, his father died when he was 14 years old. After art college in 1949 he moved to an apartment in New York with his mother and 25 Siamese cats.
Ingram writes about his experiments with ‘multiples’ during the Pop art scene of the 1960s with Roy Lichtenstein; the influence of advertisements, comic books and cartoons; the avant-garde phase; the Silver Factory; the Death and Disaster series; his five hour and 21 minute film called Sleep; Business Art; Time Capsules; and death revisited.
She tracks his changing genres and themes and also the change in the artist – his ‘image change’ after 1962, in which he created his signature look of dark glasses, leather jacket, high Chelsea boots, and jeans. Culture critic Steven Shaviro considered ‘Warhol’s greatest work of art was himself.’
There is also a short section about how Warhol’s personality affected his ‘sense of space’ and how a sense of space affected his personality.
This is Warhol is a cardboard covered book with an artistic interior emulating Warhol’s style – with information in comic book style and story boards. It’s a brief view of the artist and some of the writing in the illustrations is small and difficult to read. Nevertheless it is a creative depiction of the iconic artist.
