By Mark Rosenthal, Marla Prather, Ian Alteveer, and Rebecca Lowery
For decades, commentators have acknowledged Andy Warhol's phenomenal impact on contemporary art. Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years is the first full-scale exploration of his tremendous reach across several generations of artists who in key ways respond to his groundbreaking work, among them John Baldessari, Robert Gober, Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, and Ryan Trecartin. These juxtapositions not only demonstrate Warhol's overt influence but also suggest how artists have either worked in parallel modes or developed his model in dynamic new directions.
The volume includes a major essay by Mark Rosenthal, original interviews with a number of the artists featured in the book, and a visual archive and extensive illustrated chronology that chart the "Warhol effect" over the past fifty years.
This book accompanies the exhibition of the same title which had been on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for which two works by Warhol have been borrowed from the DIA. These two self-portraits grace the front and back covers.
