Milestones of Art: Andy Warhol: The Factory
In 1961, Andy Warhol resolved to become the chronicler of the affluent society. His series of consumption products is heralded by hand-painted dollar bills, coke bottles, and the 32 varieties of Campbell's soup cans. In 1968 he is shot down. The doctors declare him clinically dead. But Andy remains productive for nearly 20 years more. He dies in 1987. Author Willi Bloess asked Annette Schulze-Kremer to draw this comic biography as a reference to the 1960 years and to Mort Drucker, one of their favorites from the magazine MAD.
