About this product

Andy Warhol: Portrait of the 70’s. Softcover First Edition Random House, New York, 1979. 141 pages. Includes 120 of Warhol’s portraits of prominent celebrities, socialites, and cultural leaders of the 1970s, including Liza Minnelli, Truman Capote, Mick Jagger, Yves Saint Laurent, and David Hockney, from an exhibition which took place at the Whitney Museum of American Art. “With Warhol’s gallery of contemporary faces, the decade of 1970s high society is instantly captured. In this glittering realm, light and shadow are bleached out by the high wattage of spotlights; colors seem selected from the likes of Baskin-Robbins; and brushstrokes offer an extravagant, upper-income virtuosity which appears to be quoting, for conspicuous consumption, a bravura tradition that extends from Hals through de Kooning” (Robert Rosenblum).
