This book is an affordable introduction to Andy Warhol’s life and work and was published to coincide with Transmitting Andy Warhol, a major exhibition at Tate Liverpool. Fully illustrated in colour Tate Introductions: Andy Warhol is part of the popular series that offers a concise introduction and pictorial overview of the greatest modern artists and artistic movements.

Warhol’s work reflected and commented on contemporary themes in American society: consumerism; celebrity; mass production; disaster and death. To capture these ideas he used a wide range of iconic images: Coca Cola; Marilyn Monroe; Elvis Presley; the electric chair; the crashed car; the race riot; and the atomic bomb. His openness to subject matter was matched by a willingness to explore all media, resulting in his innovative approach to painting, photography, drawing and printmaking, and his influential activity as an experimental filmmaker.

Stephanie Straine is Assistant Curator at Tate Liverpool.
