Andy Warhol (1925-1987) was an American painter and printmaker who was a leading figure in the Pop Art movement. His work reflected the new and growing culture of mass production and advertisement that emerged as he was exploring his role as an artist. He called his studio The Factory. In art he explored the relationship between celebrity culture, drugs, pornography and sex. He is well known for his prints that were done in silkscreen form. Most notable are Campbell Soup and his series of famous people, such as Marylyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. He died in Manhattan at age 58 of complications of gallbladder surgery.
