    When people think of Warhol, the soup cans immediately come to mind. He was definitely an interesting character who lived an interesting life. This book just seemed to give too much detail about things that didn’t matter much, while glossing over who he really was.

    To Paint Soup Cans or Celebrities…. Andy Warhol was one of those unique individuals that throughout the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s we all heard about, but really never knew. Thanks of Hourly Histories, I now feel that I’ve had an opportunity to get a glimpse of his likes, his dislikes, his loves, and those he hated. Was he a man simply misunderstood, or a man who wanted to be misunderstood and mysterious. He made few friends, but supported and entire entourage at “The Factory”, his sanctuary for years.

I really enjoyed getting to know Andy Warhol this way, I doubt I would have otherwise had any ideas as to his life.

    Talented, famous, unique, pathetic Andy Warhol was an enigma. He was born into poverty and his mother, whom he seemed dependent upon, spoke very little English. He had brothers but little is known about them. He was very shy and preferred the company of women as friends but was enamored with attractive men and lived a gay lifestyle. My impression of his filmography is that it was boring, lengthy and degenerate. He was a pathetic creature who attracted others seeking fame, and drugs, although he Talented, famous, unique, pathetic Andy Warhol was an enigma.

He was a pathetic creature who attracted others seeking fame, and drugs, although he didn’t drink and his drug use wasn’t discussed. A very sad story about a man who was famous and rich but was never very happy.

    I never knew much about Andy Warhol. He was a notorious artist whose biggest claim to fame is a painting of a Campbell’s soup can. He almost singlehandedly invented camp and pop art. He was shy yet surrounded himself with celebrities choosing to observe rather than participate. He was an odd character filled with contradictions. This short 47-page book captures the highlights of his life.

    15 Minutes of Fame Andy got his fifteen minutes of fame, and then some. Warhol, the name evokes a plethora of feelings and emotions from many, the many who knew him as well as the many who thought they knew him. No doubt a fascinating man well ahead of his time.

    For a short one hour biography it is not bad. I learned a few things. I had watched the six hour documentary on Netflix about Andy Warhol prior to reading this and I was surprised that this book covered some things that the documentary did not. There is information about Warhol's early years, before he made a name for himself. I also did not realize that Warhol's mother lived with him for so long in New York. There is a lot in here about negative reactions to Warhol's work. Many art critics hate For a short one hour biography it is not bad. I learned a few things.

In the end I thought that this book rounded out the information, not all good and not all bad, but if you really want to know details I recommend the Netflix documentary entitled "The Andy Warhol Diaries."
