This third volume of the catalogue dedicated to publishing the complete paintings, sculptures and drawings of Andy Warhol (1928-87) focuses on the years 1970 to 1974. With the authoritative writing and fascinating attention to detail of the first two volumes, Warhol's works of these four years are comprehensively catalogued and illustrated, with the exception of the drawings to be included in a subsequent volume.
The fourth volume of the definitive resource to Andy Warhol's oeuvre features his portraits of celebrities such as Halston and Mick Jagger; his American Indian paintings; and the iconic Ladies and Gentlemen series.
Business art is the step that comes after Art, Andy Warhol once observed, of his career trajectory; "I started as a commercial artist, and I want to finish as a business artist." In all of his work as an artist, filmmaker, director of the Factory, band manager, magazine publisher and television entrepreneur, Warhol willfully disrupted and dismantled the line between art and commerce, terminally collapsing the values of art at the midcentury by brazenly asserting that "Good business is the best art."
