About the artist
Andy Warhol is considered one of the most important artists of American Pop Art. Growing up as a child of Slovenian immigrants in the slums of Pittsburgh, his career from poor, sick child to successful commercial artist and star of the international art scene embodies the “American Dream”. In the 1960s he founded the legendary Factory in Manhattan, where most of his world-famous serigraphs were created. What began on the factory floor reached another peak in the 1970s, when Warhol portrayed anyone for $25,000 willing to pay the money.
