Andy Warhol Art Prints

Andrew Warhola (6 August 1928 – 22 February 1987), often known as the patron saint of post-modernism, was an expert at the timeless art of portraiture. He was a central figure in the movement known as pop art. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became famous worldwide for his work as a painter, an avant-garde filmmaker, a record producer, an author, and a public figure known for his membership in wildly diverse social circles that included bohemian street people, distinguished intellectuals, Hollywood celebrities and wealthy aristocrats. Since the eighteenth century, portraits of famous people have bridged a gap of time, and provided a link to the soul of the subject. Warhol was particularly intrigued by the allurement of high-profile celebrities of his generation. Many insights can be read into the faces of the characters that Warhol created, including his images of himself. Warhol was perhaps best known for his paintings of commercial subjects, such as the Campbell's Soup can series, and for his portraits of celebrities, especially Marilyn Monroe. Warhol also coined the phrase "15 minutes of fame," which refers to the fleeting condition of celebrity that attaches to an object of media attention, then passes to some new object as soon as the public's attention span is exhausted.
