“In this evocative addition to Assouline’s Ultimate Collection, Warhol expert and former Andy Warhol Museum director Eric Shiner curates the 100 quintessential, unique works that define the evolution of this illustrious artist, tracing Warhol’s dynamic career from the late forties to the end of the eighties and creating a stunning compendium whose pieces, due to their rarity, value, and prestige as part of a museum or other collection, could merely never all be acquired by a single collector.” This is a fact – his works regularly fetch astronomical prices and considering the sticker price on this book, it’s chump change that still is going to set you back a few hundred bucks and has you sipping Ramen soup for a minute.
Warhol like Lautrec, Hopper, O’Keefe, Rauschenberg and so many other renowned artists who worked in advertising was a pioneer of the Pop movement – known for his artistic commentary on popular and media culture, and his work is still relevant and influential today to the new generation of contemporary Artists. The book’s publisher explains, “Casual art lovers know Campbell’s Soup Cans and the Marilyn Diptych, but Andy Warhol: The Impossible Collection goes more in-depth, revealing and revisiting some less ubiquitous yet equally powerful pieces, spanning paintings, prints, sculpture, films, and photography, from Warhol’s extraordinary oeuvre.”
