‘Andy Warhol: The Impossible Collection’ by Eric Shiner

$845 preorder

In the history of modern art, few artists have drew as much acclaim or caused as much controversy as Andy Warhol. A leading figure in the pop art movement, his work embraces both explicit commercialism and avant-garde innovation, giving him the perfect platform to comment upon issues that range from advertising and celebrity to religion and death.

One of the most astonishing things about Andy Warhol is the sheer breadth of media in which he worked. Most people are familiar with his Campbell’s soup can silkscreen prints, but fewer know of his revolutionary musical work with the Velvet Underground, and perhaps even fewer know of his experimental films and his Exploding Plastic Inevitable multimedia events.

For those who want to delve deeply into the work of Any Warhol, former Andy Warhol Museum director and current Sotheby’ senior vice president of contemporary art Eric Shiner presents Andy Warhol: The Impossible Collection.

Drawing upon his considerable art history and industry expertise, Eric Shiner presents 100 quintessential works that define Warhol’s oeuvre while tracing the evolution of his work from his days as a commercial artist in the late forties to his untimely demise in the eighties. Focusing on less well known but incredibly powerful examples of Warhol’s greatness, the book features and examines the artist’s prints, sculptures, photography, and films.
