Andy Warhol: Prince of Pop by Jan Greenberg & Sandra Jordan

Call Number: Juvenile Young Adult Collection N6537.W28 G74 2004
Recommended by: Jiseon Yun, International student from Korea, Haggerty English Language Program

This book was written by Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan about Andy Warhol (1928-1987), the well-known pop artist. It tells his whole life from his birth to death. He was interested in art from when he was young. He has a different view of seeing things and it affected his work. He was an isolated person and he didn’t seem to have any problem with his life even when he was struggling with financial problems. He had a great enthusiasm for art. His life wasn’t extraordinary but it was enough to attract others.

Before I read this book, I just liked some of his paintings and I didn’t know much about him. After reading this book, he inspired me to have lots of interest in not only him but also in art. I could enjoy reading this book from beginning to end as I couldn’t stop turning pages until a new story started. If you have seen any of his works and want to know more about him, I highly recommend you read this book. You will find something special that you didn’t know before.
