Andy Warhol (1928 - 1987) is one of the most revered artists of the late Twentieth Century, being one of the key figures in the American Pop Art movement. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became famous worldwide for his work as a painter, avant-garde filmmaker, television producer, author and public figure. He was known for his presence in wildly diverse social circles that included intellectuals, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy aristocrats. A controversial figure during his lifetime, Warhol has been the subject of numerous retrospective exhibitions, books and documentary films since his death in 1987. It was Warhol who in 1979 first said, ‘In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.’
