About this title
Andy Warhol (1928-1987) once said that in the future, everyone would be famous for 15 minutes. But his own fame only continues to grow . . . as does his influence on art and culture. This beautifully illustrated biography, which includes over 20 items of facsimile memorabilia, much of it previously unpublished, follows the arc of his rags-to-riches life, from his early years in Depression-era Pittsburgh to his success as an illustrator in New York City in the 1950s to his transformation into a notorious Pop Artist, underground filmmaker, author, publisher, collector, recorder, and iconic celebrity.
Matt Wrbican has been assistant archivist of The Andy Warhol Museum since 1991 and has curated more than 20 Warhol exhibitions. He is co-author of One Stop Warhol Shop (website, 1999), Andy Warhol's Time Capsule 21 (2003), Andy Warhol 365 Takes: The Andy Warhol Museum Collection (2004), and Andy Warhol's Time Boxes (2006). His knowledge of Warhol's life and times has assisted numerous other publications. He supervises Warhol's vast personal archives (including the Time Capsules) of more than 250,000 objects held by the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.
