Poor little rich man Andy Warhol (1928-1987) surrounded himself with the trappings of wealth, secreted bundles of cash in odd places, cultivated a cadre of high-society friends, and housed multitudes of cats. A true eccentric, he became one of the iconic artists of post-mid-century modernism and his work defines the genre of Pop Art. From self-consciousness about his small stature, poor complexion, and childhood poverty, Warhol designed a persona that included platinum-tinted wigs, beaded masks, and an affected disinterest in the opinion of others. The painter, sculptor, printmaker, performance artist, actor, director, entertainment personality, and Celebrity—with a capital C—that Andy Warhol formulated and delivered to the outside world belied an insecure, religious, conflicted man who was seen by his public as simultaneously saint and sinner.
