The catalogue raisonné constitutes an indispensable record of Andy Warhol’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures: some 15,000 works produced by the artist between 1948 and 1987, the year of his death. As in Volume 1, Volume 2 features a fascinating collection of source material—especially the rare studio photographs taken by Billy Name-Linich, who became The Factory's first de facto photographic historian.
This project is co-sponsored by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in New York and by Thomas Ammann Fine Art in Zurich. This volume documents 23 series and more than 1,400 individual works, including the Thirteen Most Wanted Men series, the box sculptures, approximately 300 works in the Jackie series, and the 1964 and 1964-5 Flowers series. Editors Georg Frei and Neil Printz focus on Warhol's serial production, analyzing the evolution of Warhol's working methods and the growing relationship between Warhol's exhibitions and his studio production. They provide a sophisticated and extensive chronology for the works of this period, many of which have been difficult to locate and to date, due to their seriality, and text deconstructing Warhol's riveting story.
