Volume 1 of the Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné—the definitive record of the artist's paintings, sculptures, and drawings—covers the paintings and sculptures produced by Warhol between 1961-1963. Also included is an incredible array of rarely published source material, containing newspaper scraps and movie star publicity stills that inspired Warhol's boundlessly fascinating life and career. This authoritative volume includes classic, beloved Warhols such as the Campbell Soup paintings, images of the iconic figures of Marilyn, Liz and Elvis, and early self-portraits.
The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné was initiated in 1977 by Thomas Ammann. Editors Georg Frei and Neil Printz began primary research in 1993 and have been advised throughout the project by the distinguished curators and art historians Kynaston McShine and Robert Rosenblum. Experts from the Andy Warhol Foundation personally examined the vast majority of Warhol's works and began a thorough review of his archive, which at his death consisted of some 1,500 cardboard boxes, flat files, and trunks filled with source material, memorabilia, correspondence and junk mail. The editors examined works in museum conservation facilities. All of their findings are documented in this unprecendented project.
