Andy Warhol was famous for being famous, but his body of work reveals a unique understanding of America's star-making machinery.
Isabel Kuhl looks at the world Warhol inhabited as a young man - a post-war America on the brink of mass commercialism and mass production - to examine his iconic paintings and prints.
She demonstrates how Warhol's fascination with pop culture meshed perfectly with a cultural mood at once reflective and rebellious.
The innovative layout allows the artist's brilliantly colored prints and paintings to spring to life, while photographs from Warhol's life in and out of the limelight offer a balanced appreciation of an artist who taught his audience how to appreciate his art.
