The Life and Death of Andy Warhol by Victor Bockris. Artist, filmmaker, magazine publisher, instigator of Pop Art, Andy Warhol (1928-1987) used his canvasses of dollar bills, soup cans, and celebrities to subvert distinctions between high and popular culture. His spectacular career encompassed the underground scene as well as the equally deviant worlds of politics, show business, and high society. Warhol is the definitive chronicle of Warhol’s storied life.
Traces his life, career, and premature death of the influential pop artist and self-made celebrity, based on candid interviews with family members and devotees, fellow artists, and former loves. 400 pages
