There may be no artist more legendary than Andy Warhol. The “pope of Pop” helped usher in a new arts movement, known for his iconic silkscreens as well as founding Interview magazine.
Andrew Warhola Jr. was born in Pittsburgh in 1928 to working-class immigrants from Austria-Hungary. After studying at Carnegie Mellon, Warhol had a successful start in NYC as an illustrator in advertising, and he was commissioned to draw shoes for Glamour magazine in the 1940s. A few exhibitions in the 1950s brought him attention and notoriety, and Max Arthur Cohn taught him how to create silkscreens in the 1960s, leading to a fertile period of artistic output and some of Warhol’s most famous works such as Campbell’s Soup Cans and Marilyn Diptych. Warhol’s Factory attracted bohemians, artists, models and socialites, all contributing to shaping NYC’s culture as a mecca for creative souls. Additionally, he managed The Velvet Underground and founded Interview in 1969.
Warhol went through a quieter decade in the 1970s, but reemerged in the 1980s, largely due to his friendships with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Julian Schnabel. The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh is the largest museum devoted to a single artist in the United States.
