A Teach Yourself - Key Figures Beginner's Guide.
It would be hard to overestimate the importance of Andy Warhol in twentieth century art. His work addresses and indeed embodies most of the major themes and dilemmas artists have confronted in this period. This book examines Warhol's origins as a "pop artist" and shows that his significance is much wider and greater than the limiting term suggests.
In discussing Warhol's work, Geoff Nicholson considers:
- The role of pop culture and mass media
- The nature of fame and celebrity
- Sex, gender and transgression
- Issues of representation and the role of the reproduced image
