HARPERCOLL
Pop: The Genius of Andy Warhol is a groundbreaking reassessment of the most influential and controversial American artist of the second half of the 20th century. Writers Tony Scherman and David Dalton disentangle the myths of the great pop artist from the man he truly was, and offer a vivid, entertaining, and provocative look at Warhol’s personal and artistic evolution. Drawing on brand new sources—including extensive new interviews and insight from those who knew him best—Pop offers the most dynamic, comprehensive portrait ever written of the man who changed the way we see the world.

With a sleight of hand, Andy Warhol redefined the boundaries of painting, sculpture, and film, bending them to serve the purpose of his vision. A product of the teeming, exciting, vulgar new world of sixties America, Warhol would take from pop culture asmuch as pop culture would take from him. Based on extensive new interviews and insight from those who knew him best, Scherman's "Pop" reveals the man behind the public pose.
