Andy Warhol Portraits

Warhol_portraits
Yes, Andy Warhol did a famous portrait of Marilyn Monroe – but he also did a lot more, more than 300 in fact – and these are all collected in a new book by Phaidon – Andy Warhol Portraits.

The book is the first to offer a comprehensive overview of Warhol`s many portraits, including well-known icons as well as many works largely unknown even by avid Warhol followers, including socialites, art dealers, collectors, politicians, and  cult figures of a particular era. The portraits cover a wide period in time –  from the early 1960s until his death in 1987.

Also included is an introduction by gallerist Tony Shafrazi and essays by Warhol experts, art historians, and critics.

Available now in hardback, you can pick it up for around £30.
