More than sixty samples of criticism reprinted from a variety of sources offer insights about the most controversial artist of the century. The collection includes some of the most important and best examples of Warhol criticism and provides access to material that is no longer easily obtainable. Organized chronologically, the criticism has been selected on the basis of its value in interpreting Warhol's artistic legacy. Valuable for scholars, students, and others interested in art and popular culture.

The diverse nature of the texts presented here enables readers to compare critical and popular reactions as well as to follow the evolution of the criticism. In addition, as unrevised art history, the material offers additional insight into issues related to art criticism, art history, and the machinery of culture. The work includes a chronology of the artist's life, a selected bibliography of over 100 entries, and a detailed subject index providing a complete, cross-referenced directory to the assembled criticism.
