Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol, 1979

Andy Warhol died, February 22, in 1987 (b. 1928). Warhol was once advised by an art teacher to paint what he liked, which happened to be rather ordinary things.

Karsh photographed Warhol in 1979, 10 years after Warhol founded Interview magazine. See more images of Warhol by Karsh.
