One of the world's best-known artists, Any Warhol (1928-87) exerts a powerful influence on contemporary art and culture around the world today.
Packed with information about Warhol's prolific creativity, as well as his other cultural interests, Andy Warhol Treasures follows the arc of his life.
It reveals Warhol's rags-to-riches progress from his early years in depression era Pittsburgh to his success as an illustrator in New York City in the 1950s and his transformation into a notorious pop artist, underground filmmaker, author, publisher, collector, recorder and iconic celebrity.
Over 20 beautifully produced removable facsimile items sourced from his "time capsule" boxes now housed at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh give an unprecedented insight into Warhol's life and work in this unique, authoritative appreciation of this celebrated modern artist.
