Full Description
Explore Andy Warhol's surprising, lifelong engagement with nature as subject matter for his artistic practice.  While he was well known for his responsiveness to popular culture and advertising, Warhol simultaneously engaged with the natural world through his work, depicting landscapes, flora, and fauna in innovative and surprising ways.  Accompanying the exhibition Warhol's Nature, organised by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and featuring works drawn primarily from the collections of the Andy Warhol Museum, this fully illustrated book covers every decade of the Pop icon's long career, from his earliest drawings as a commercial illustrator through his later paintings of flowers and wildlife. Gain fresh perspective on artworks like Warhol's Self-Portrait in his infamous fright wig overlaid with camouflage, the iconic Flowers series of the 1960s, rarely seen photographs, and more. Essays by Warhol scholars and experts offer further insight into this under-studied yet vitally important strain of the artist's career.
