Description
Artist, filmmaker, activist, trendsetter—Andy Warhol was all of these things, in addition to being a full-time celebrity. Philosopher-critic Arthur C. Danto delivers a compact tour of Andy Warhol's personal, artistic, and philosophical transformations, covering the pop artist's early reception, relationships with such artists as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and the chaotic "happenings" at his Factory. Danto offers close readings of individual Warhol works, exploring their social context and philosophical dimensions, key differences with such predecessors as Marcel Duchamp, and parallels with successors like Jeff Koons.

"Danto astutely traces the ripple effects of Warhol's blurring of the lines between commercial and fine art…. A masterful crystallization of why and how Warhol's revolutionary techniques and creations shattered the traditional, restrictive definition of art, and razed the way for today’s creative pluralism and artistic freedom."—Booklist (starred review)
