Joseph D. Ketner II
Paperback, 224 p.Andy Warhol: The Last Decade
features more than 150 works from the mid-70s and 80s, the most prolific period in his 40-year career. This catalogue accompanies the striking exhibition that is the first in the country to explore the artist's late works.
Assembled from national and international public and private collections, including the Andy Warhol Museum, Andy Warhol: The Last Decade illustrates the artist engaging in the physical act of art-making through hand painting, folding, and mopping. These late works, many more personal to Warhol than the commissioned celebrity portraits from the same period he is more frequently associated with, reveal the dramatic transformation of the artist's works between 1976 and 1986.
Provocative essays by Keith Hartley and Gregory Volk offer new and intriguing perspectives on the subject. And personal contributions by Bruno Bischofberger, Keith Haring, and Julian Schnabel round out this compelling look at an art superstar.
