It would be hard to overestimate the importance of Andy Warhol in twentieth-century art. His work addresses and embodies most of the major themes and dilemmas artists have confronted in this period. These might be described as the role of pop culture and the mass media, the significance of the reproducible image, the nature of fame and celebrity, sex and gender representations and not least irony.
This handy series from Headway offers brief yet lucid introductions to the world’s cultural icons. Each book examines the life, the work, and the legends surrounding its subject, and key terms and concepts are highlighted and clearly explained. Additionally, each chapter ends with a review section for easy reference and to help consolidate the reader’s understanding of the text.
