Andy Warhol

Artist Bio
Spanning his long and productive career, Andy Warhol's portraits represent his largest body of work. Fascinated by the people he encountered, Warhol strove to immortalize them with images of their most glamorous selves. Mixing the grand tradition of Greco-Roman statuary with his distinctively underground version of Hollywood, he turned everyone into a star and lent everlasting life to an entire society. His subjects ranged from presidents to industrialists, from movie stars and sports figures to fashion designers, from society ladies to business men and women as well as ordinary people. Andy saw everyone as interesting, original and sacred, and worthy of being immortalized.
