THE ART OF ANDY WARHOL F R O M T H E A N D Y W A R H O L F O U N D AT I O N

AB RAM S

2011

Pop artist Andy Warhol is a source of continuing fascination and visual excitement. He is known for appropriating images from popular culture and incorporating them into artworks; his Campbell’s Soup Can, Marilyn, and Elvis series remain icons today. When Warhol died on February 22, 1987, he was firmly established as one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century and an international celebrity. In the years since his death, his brand has become a multimillion-dollar-generating machine that has raised more than $300 million dollars for his nonprofit foundation. Abrams’ Warhol calendars feature the most fabulous and recognizable images the artist ever created interspersed with a rich and rare selection of drawings, illustrations, and quotations. •

One of the most famous artists of the 20th century, Warhol’s work is iconic and instantly recognizable.

Andy is everywhere— one of the most famous artists of the 20th century continues to fascinate new generations through exposure from multinational licensing of his art
