THE ANDY WARHOL CATALOGUE RAISONNE, PAINTINGS 1976-1978
This two-book addition to The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné persuasively demonstrates the subversive core of Warhol’s art. Intent on radical departure from his portraiture in the early seventies, Warhol’s production gradually became anything but ‘just faces’. From portraits of athletes and self-portraits to his Skull and Hammer and Sickle series, the Torso and Sex Parts paintings, and his abstract Piss, Oxidation, and Cum canvases, volume 5 showcases Warhol’s work
as powerful, and provocative as ever.
Neil Printz co-edited volumes 1 and 2 of the Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné and is the editor of volumes 3 and 4. He was formerly editor of the Isamu Noguchi Catalogue Raisonné and research curator for twentieth-century art at The Menil Collection, Houston. Sally King-Nero, executive editor of Volumes 2, 3, and 4 of the Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné, is curator of drawings and photographs at the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in New York.
