Anecdotal, funny, frank, POPism is Warhol’s personal view of the Pop phenomenon in New York in the 1960s and a look back at the relationships that made up the scene at the Factory, including his relationship with Edie Sedgewick, focus of the upcoming film Factory Girl. In the detached, back-fence gossip style he was famous for, Warhol tells allthe ultimate inside story of a decade of cultural revolution.
The darling of pop art released these autobiographical portraits in 1975 and 1980, respectively. With his shock of blonde-white hair and unusual art style, you might think these remembrances would be a real freak show, but instead they're remarkably tame and straightforward. Popism focuses on that movement and the 1960s, while Philosophy is more a personal reflection. Both would fit nicely into art or biography collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
