About the publication

It was through prints that Warhol amply fulfilled his vocation as a Pop artist, integrating the civilization of marketed images so fully he even became its image himself. His Marilyn, Campbell’s Soup, Mao, Paloma, Mick Jagger, and Lenin prints are recognized throughout the world. They proclaimed America’s hegemony in the 1960s and 1970s and its capacity to take over the world, while also making Warhol a universal household name. This book is the story of these prints. It is also the story of the irresistible rise of one of the most famous artists of the 20th century.
