Andy Warhol

Modena Musset, 1968
catálogo/livro de artista com fotografias de Andy Warhol

"Published by Moderna Musett, Sweden in 1968 as an exhibition catalogue for the show "Andy Warhol" at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, February - March, 1968. With virtually no text except for some of Warhol's famous quotes, the book contains numerous full page black and white illustrations of iconic Warhol images as well as hundreds of black and white photographs by Rudy Burkhardt, Eric Pollitzer, John Schiff, and Stephen Shore that provide incredible insight into the remarkable creativity of Andy Warhol. Writing about the book in their photobook reference work “The Photobook: A History, Volume 2”, Parr and Badger stated, "It is a fine example of the catalogue-as-artist's-book, a form that ostensibly began with the Dadaists and Surrealists, and is produced with some of the roughest reproductions ever seen, which are entirely appropriate, and supplemented by a long section of Factory snapshots by Billy Name. The genre was revitalized by the Pop movement, and Warhol in particular, which demonstrates his position as a latter-day Dadaist. The Moderna Museet publication especially had a great influence upon Japanese photography in the late 1960s and 1970s, particularly the photobooks of the Provoke era.”
