About This Book

"Astutely traces the ripple effects of Warhol's blurring of the lines between commercial and fine art, and art and real life…masterful."— Booklist (starred review) Art critic, philosopher, and winner of a National Book Critics Circle Award Arthur Dantodelivers a compact, masterfultour of Andy Warhol's personal, artistic, and philosophical transformations. Danto traces the evolution of the pop artist, including his early reception, relationships with artists such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and the Factory phenomenon. He offers close readings of individual Warhol works, including their social context and philosophical dimensions, key differences with predecessors such as Marcel Duchamp, and parallels with successors like Jeff Koons. By drawing on subject matter understandable to the ordinary American, Warhol revolutionized the way we look at art. In this book, Danto brings to bear encyclopedic knowledge of Warhol's time andshows us Warhol as an endlessly multidimensional figure—artist, political activist, filmmaker, writer, philosopher—who retains permanentresidence in our national imagination.
