About the Artist
Fascinated by consumer culture, the media, and fame, Andy Warhol became one of the most famous and important artists of the 20th century. By the early 1960s, his paintings of dollar bills, soup cans, and movie stars established his status as the founder of pop art. Repetition was key to Warhol's work, as evidenced by his many recurrent series of subjects such as flowers, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Chairman Mao, among others. He deliberately infused his work with a mechanical and impersonal character that intensified when he adopted silk-screen–printing techniques in order to increase his production. To accelerate this process even further, he employed a large group of assistants in his studio, dubbed "The Factory." This practice brilliantly reflected the commercial, industrial economy of the mechanical reproduction age.
