I have an appreciation of art formed as a child when I got hold of a set of second hand books that contained illustrations of great paintings and subseuently from browsing art galleries and museums I have found it interesting to find out about the great masters but hadn’t really delved into the life of anyone like Andy Warhol until now Images in a book awakened my enjoyment of art and viewing art either in person or in books has kept that interest alive and expanding all the timeFor me Warhol’s art is instantly recognisable and although I know of Constable and Reynolds etc I would not necessarily recognise their hand as uickly except for the obvious Although his art is well known I still expected to see images in the book allowing further appreciation as I read about his lifeThis is a good and weighty biography that is readable and informative about the charismatic Andy Warhol but I am disappointed by the lack of illustration which I would have expected to be a given when you are reading about an artist It is a dry read lacking in illustration which is a huge pity when you consider you are reading about an artist
