ABOUT THIS BOOK

The 607 paintings and one sculpture documented in Volume 4 of The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné were produced during a period of less than three years, from late 1974 through early 1977. In September 1974, Warhol changed studios, moving across Union Square from the sixth floor of 33 Union Square West to the third floor of 860 West Broadway. Like Volumes 2 and 3, Volume 4 is identified with a new studio, where Warhol continued to work for a decade, until he moved into his last studio at 22 East 33 Street on December 3, 1984. Volume 4 may be seen as the first in a series of books associated with one studio that will document an enormously productive ten-year period in Warhol's oeuvre from the mid seventies to the mid eighties.

REVIEWS

"An unmistakable silk-screened cover distinguishes the first volume of the Warhol catalogue raisonné, assembling paintings and sculptures completed between 1961 and 1963. Commenced in 1977 by Thomas Ammann, the ambitious multi-volume project, once completed, will be the definitive resource on the innumerable, controversial works of the Pop star. In 1993 Georg Frei and Neil Printz - the first a critic and curator, the latter an art historian specializing in 20th-century American art - began editing the catalogue in cooperation with Kynaston McShine, Robert Rosenblum, the Andy Warhol Foundation, and the Andy Warhol Authentication Board. In addition to essays and colour reproductions, Volume 1 contains an array of interesting sources used by the artist, including newspaper clippings and publicity shots of movie stars."—Tema Celeste

"If the Warhol catalogue raisonné stands to offer us new information about Warhol's project, we cannot ignore the fact that at the same time it functions as a tool of authentication for the market...In the end, even if the authenticating function of the catalogue raisonné comes up against the thornier issues by the artist's unique approach to authorship, we are left wih productive insights into Warhol's broader project."—Art Journal

"It's gratuitous, gigantic, gaudy-and expensive. Warhol would have loved it."—Details

"One does not ordinarily read catalogue raisonnés for fun, but the volume on Andy Warhol that deals with his paintings and sculptures from 1961 to 1963 takes you as close as I think you could get to the way his mind worked in that extraordinarily creative period. The mystery of Warhol's mind is undissolved, but how that mind worked on a day-to-day basis is thrilling to observe."—Arthur C Danto, Emeritus Johnsonian Professor of Philosophy, Columbia University, The Art Newspaper
