Thisstunning collections of 112 Andy WARHOL portraits - two variations each of 56people - is published in conjunction with a major exhibition organized by theWhitney Museum of American Art. Celebrated in the sixties for his Pop paintingsof Campbell's soup cans, film stars and disasters, WARHOL has found equal renownin the seventies with his commissioned portraiture. Here, in glorious color, areAndy's remarkable interpretations of his friends: collectors, art dealers andthe Beautiful People. Among those included are Diane von Furstenberg, Halston,Mick Jagger, Brooke Hayward, Jane Holzer, Liza Minelli, Carolina Herreraand Yves St. Laurent. The introductory essay by Robert Rosenblum, one ofAmerica's most distinguished art historians, places WARHOL's work in the contextof traditional portrait painting. In translating "the journalistic mediumof photography into the realm of art", WARHOL revised this traditional at atime when it had been largely abandoned by most serious artists. His use of themechanized look of commercial photography grants WARHOL a new "aestheticlanguage" and an utterly contemporary style that paradoxically preservesits subject for prosperity. WARHOL, as Rosenblum remarks, is a celebrity amongcelebrities, the "ideal court painter to the 1970s internationalaristocracy". Individually these portraits capture the complexpersonalities of their subjects; together they capture the look of society inthis decade. Brooke Hayward, at once ravishingly worldly and devastatinglyinnocent; Carolina Herrera, a queen tigress among tigerwomen....
