Main description:

To his critics, he was the cynical magus of a movement that debasedhigh art and reduced it to a commodity. To his admirers, he was the mostimportant artist since Picasso. As the quintessential Pop artist, Andy Warhol razed the barrier between high and low culture.

Pop disentangles the myths of Warhol from the man he truly was, offering a vivid, entertaining, and provocative look at the legendary artist’s personal and artistic evolution during his most productive and innovative years. It is a dynamic, groundbreaking portrait of the man who changed the way we see the world.

Review quote:

“[A] fascinating study of Warhol’s rise from commercial artist to the most celebrated painter and filmmaker in 1960s America.”

Review quote:

“[Draws] for the first time on full use of the archives of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. . . . [A] crazy, amazing, compelling story. This book does it justice.”

Review quote:

“A comprehensive reappraisal. . . . Both an indelible portrait of the artist as a weird young man and an elegant survey of one of the most vital and revolutionary periods in American popular culture-a richly detailed, kaleidoscopic treat.”

Review quote:

“A sharp-eyed chronicle of those unsettled days in the early sixties when everything was up for grabs. . . . Pulling back the curtain, this fascinating book takes the true measure of Andy Warhol, the pale, enigmatic Wizard of Odd.”

Review quote:

“An excellent book, a work of great clarity and concision that makes Warhol (and rock critics) feel fresh again.”

Review quote:

“Andy was fascinated with the speed and acceleration of life. This book beautifully conveys the sixties and his inner world. This is as close as you are going to get to the enigmatic Andy that I knew and liked.”

Review quote:

“If you want to know how Andrew Warhola became Andy Warhol, read this book.”

Review quote:

“Illuminating.”

Review quote:

“Mr. 15 minutes of fame gets 441 well-researched pages.”

Review quote:

“No stone is left unturned in this insightful, entertaining biography, which also offers a fascinating account of the crazy visionary sixties decade. A must-read, POP is a fun trip into the complex world of the madman plastic inevitable genius that was Andy Warhol.”

Review quote:

“Riveting.... Exhaustively researched, seductively written.”

Review quote:

“Scherman, a music writer, and Dalton, an art writer who briefly worked as an assistant to Warhol, entertainingly trace the artist rise from sickly, poor art student to a wealthy, prize winning Manhattan advertising designer to the most unlikely avant-garde painter of all time.”

Review quote:

“Scholarly, impeccably researched and well written, POP immerses us in the fast-moving, dissolute life of Andy Warhol. . . . No one could, or can, be indifferent to Warhol. This book gives us a deeply insightful portrait of the tormented man behind the myth.”

Review quote:

“What a feast of deep and penetrating investigation! Out of this wealth of fascinating detail-thousands of stories, observations, conversations-Tony Scherman and David Dalton have beautifully mapped out the making of the remarkable life and art of one of the greatest rebel heroes and innovative liberators in art history.”

Short description/annotation:

Pop: The Genius of Andy Warhol is a groundbreaking reassessment of the most influential and controversial American artist of the second half of the 20th century. Writers Tony Scherman and David Dalton disentangle the myths of the great pop artist from the man he truly was, and offer a vivid, entertaining, and provocative look at Warhol’s personal and artistic evolution. Drawing on brand new sources—including extensive new interviews and insight from those who knew him best—Pop offers the most dynamic, comprehensive portrait ever written of the man who changed the way we see the world.
