In Andy Warhol and the Can that Sold the World, the dazzlingly versatile critic Gary Indiana tells the story of the genesis and impact of this iconic work of art. With energy, wit, and tremendous perspicacity, Indiana recovers the exhilaration and controversy of the Pop Art Revolution and the brilliant, tormented, and profoundly narcissistic figure at its vanguard.
About the Author
Praise For Andy Warhol and the Can That Sold the World…
“Elegant and impressive…[a] witty, smart, near-definitive consideration of Warhol.”
San Diego Tribune
“Gary Indiana’s Andy Warhol and the Can That Sold the World is a fresh portrait of the artist…No one has dissected Warhol’s complex personality better. And no one has written more concisely and accessibly about him.”
Lincoln Journal Star
“Heartily recommend[ed]…I’ve got a shelf of Warhol books - biographies, essays, exhibition catalogs - and I’ve seen dozens of exhibitions of his work. Indiana’s book added something to my knowledge and understanding of Warhol, which is saying something.”
Baltimore City Paper
“A thoughtful look at the late Pop artist’s defining work…in narrowing his focus, the author locates and captures Warhol’s essence.”
“Indiana is able to give a fresh and new perspective on one of America’s most enigmatic 20th-century artistic figures, beyond any other biography heretofore.”
