Starring: Andy Warhol
|He was the most American of artists and the most artistic of Americans, one man later said so American in fact that he is almost invisible to us. ANDY WARHOL a riveting and often deeply moving film portrait of the most famous and famously controversial artist of the second half of the twentieth century is the first to explore the complete spectrum of Warhol's astonishing artistic output, stretching across five decades from the late 1940's to his untimely death in 1987. Combining powerful on-camera interviews and rare still and motion picture footage, it is also the first to put Warhol himself his humble family background and formative experiences in Pittsburgh, and his crucial apprenticeship as a commercial artist in New York back into the presentation of his life.Format: DVD MOVIE|
