About this item

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is one of the most iconic figures in twentieth-century art, an enigmatic man who not only altered the definition of art but also in his wake left a vast and staggeringly complex record of his daily activities. Phaidon Press is pleased to present the Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonne, the definitive record of the artists paintings, sculptures, and drawings: some 15,000 works produced by Warhol between 1948 and 1987. Also included is an incredible array of rarely published source material: newspaper scraps, movie star publicity stills that inspired Warhols endlessly fascinating life and career.

The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonne was initiated in 1977 by Thomas Ammann. The editors Georg Frei and Neil Printz began primary research in 1993 and have been advised throughout the project by the distinguished curators and art historians Kynaston McShine and Robert Rosenblum. Experts from the Andy Warhol Foundation personally examined the vast majority of Warhols works and began a thorough review of his archive, which at his death consisted of some 1,500 cardboard boxes, flat files, and trunks filled with source material, memorabilia, correspondence, and junk mail.

The editors examined works in museums in their conservation facilities and discussed them with conservators, submitted works for review by the Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board, and interviewed Warhols assistants and colleagues to assemble a customized database of works unparalleled in Warhol scholarship. All of their findings are documented in this unprecendented project. Each annotated catalogue entry includes the works title, date, medium, dimensions, and present owner, followed by a record of inscriptions, provenance, exhibitions, and literature. Related works are linked by general introductory texts that address historical circumstances, shared themes, and studio practices. Supplementary figures to the texts illustrate source materials Warhol appropriated for his works--newspaper articles and advertisements, soup cans, publicity stills--as well as related drawings, works by other artists, and studio and exhibition views.

Volume 1 includes classic and much-prized Warhols such as the Campbell Soup paintings, images of icons Marilyn, Liz, and Elvis and early self-portraits.
