Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is synonymous with the American 'Pop Art' movement. Warhol started is career as a successful commercial illustrator and this early work formed his interest in manipulating popular images. He was also fascinated with fame and was enchanted by Marilyn Monroe. Shortly after her death he set out to pay tribute to her with his Marilyn edition prints. The Campbell’s Soup Cans and Flowers followed shortly after. The 60s were groundbreaking years in Warhol’s career. It was a time when he developed his signature style and today, the works from this period are considered his most important and are highly sought after.
Warhol's obsession with consumerism and celebrity led to some wonderful contradictions in his art that still make him one of the most historically important artists of the 20th century.
