Warhol’s America

Who better symbolizes the America of the 60s than Andy Warhol? In the space of a few years, the “enfant terrible” of the New York underground became the spokesman of modern America, the essence of which he communicated by borrowing the country’s codes, myths and symbols. Mickey Mouse, Marilyn Monroe, the dollar, the Coca Cola bottle, became new subjects for screen prints, but also the precursors to a new style that was destined to change the course of Western art and to propagate a new image of the States. This illustrated insight includes two interviews with Warhol.
