One of the 20th century's best-known artists, Andy Warhol made his name in the early 1960s with paintings and prints of brand name celebrities and foods ranging from Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor to Coca-Cola and Campbell's Soup. These brash, innovative works are considered icons of Pop Art, a movement that both critiqued and celebrated postwar American consumer culture. By the end of the decade, Warhol had become a celebrity in his own right, equally famous for his platinum wig and the star-studded parties he threw at his studio, the Factory, as he was for his paintings, drawings, sculpture, and films. Although he was only 58 years old when he died, he left an immense body of work that seems increasingly relevant today as the distinctions among art, entertainment, information, and spectacle continue to erode.
