Annotation

You might recognize him from his famous paintings of Campbell's soup cans and coke bottles. But do you know about the artist who created these images? Any Warhol was often sick as a child but found comfort in reading comic books and most especially in drawing. From his early days in Pittsburgh in the 1930s to the height of his glory in the 1960s when he blurred the line between commercial art and fine art, this book chronicles an artist's remarkable path to becoming a renowned Pop Art icon.
