Through his art, ideas, and style, Andy Warhol made an indelible mark on the history of modern art and on popular culture. This book features ten paintings by Warhol selected from The Museum of Modern Art’s substantial collection of his work. His famous Gold Marilyn Monroe and Campbell’s Soup Cans are here, along with other equally groundbreaking and iconic silkscreen paintings—from his early work of 1961 to The Last Supper, a painting in progress at the time of his death, in 1987. Lively texts by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, accompany the works, illuminating the significance of each one and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art and in Warhol’s life.
A paperback edition is also available.
