The paradox of Andy Warhol, who is at once one of the most visible and the most elusive figures of our time, is heightened by this collection of twenty interviews with the artist's closest friends and colleagues. Through their words a more complete picture emerges of the man behind the mirror. Their recollections form an ever entertaining, often fascinating oral history of his career. Complementing the text are more than fifty works from private collections and the Warhol archives, most of which have never been published before.

Interviews in the original Interview mode--direct and unedited--evoke the serendipity and laissez-faire creativity of the Factory, where Warhol reigned without ruling. Included are the stories of Vito Giallo, the studio assistant turned antiques dealer whose shop was a regular stop on Warhol's shopping itinerary; of Baby Jane Holzer, one of the biggest superstars of Warhol's underground films; of Bob Colacello and Marc Balet, former editor and art director at Interview; and of Billy Name, who literally lived at the silver-coated Factory during the turbulent sixties.

Photographs by Billy Name, Paige Powell, and other friends create a clearer, more intimate picture of the artist and all that swirled around him.

About the Author:

Unseen Warhol's co-authors were studio assistants to Warhol in the 1980's. During that time John O'Connor was also advertising art director at Warhol's Interview. After receiving his master's from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard, he went on to become art director for the Harvard Business Review. His books include Philip Johnson: The Architect in His Own Words, co-authored by Hilary Lewis, which received an AIA International Architecture Book Award in 1995.

Benjamin Liu, who was personal assistant to the artist in the 1980's, is presently a creative services consultant to numerous American and international fashion companies. He is also a freelance contributor for Japanese art and style publications.

Review:

Two of Warhol's former assistants have collected his unseen works into a package which contains gifts the artist gave to his close friends and associates. These are paired with recollections and histories to provide an intriguing new angle on Warhol's art and times, creating a unique catalog which will prove essential to any student of Warhol's art. -- Midwest Book Review
