documentarist of the American social scene.
Somewhere within the iconic images, carefully-made personae,
star-studded milieu, million-dollar price tags and famous quotes
lies the real Andy Warhol. But who was he?
With Andy Warhol,Robert Shore unfolds the multidimensional
Warhol, dissecting his existence as undisputed artworld
hotshot, recreating the amazing circle that surrounded him,
and tracing his path to stardom back through his early career and
his awkward and unusual youth. After Warhol, nothing would be
the same - he changed art forever. Find out how with his
'Lives of the Artists' is a new series of brief artists biographies
from Laurence King Publishing. The series takes as its inspiration

with modern takes on the lives of key artists past and present.
Focusing on the life of the artist rather than examining their work,
each book also includes key images illustrating the artist's life.
