Soup cans! Dollar bills! Movie stars! Paint by numbers! Is it art? Yes! Andy Warhol’s art.
Following award-winning artist biographies Degas and the Dance, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Cezanne, an exciting new book from Abrams Books for Young Readers looks at Andy Warhol. A leader of the American art movement known as Pop, short for “popular culture,” Warhol changed the way we think of art. Assisted by photographs taken of Warhol throughout his life, and examples of his early drawings and best-known works, Susan Goldman Rubin traces his rise from poverty to wealth, and from obscurity to fame.
After attending art school in Pittsburgh, Warhol started a career as a commercial artist in New York, and quickly won acclaim for his creative advertisements. When he turned to “real” painting, he used his background in commercial illustration and blurred the line between high and low art.
Some critics have said that Warhol’s pictures of Campbell’s soup cans and Coca-Cola bottles represent American life. But Warhol said, “I just paint those objects in my paintings because those are the things I know best. I think of myself as an American artist.” Warhol’s unique images will appeal to young readers, and inspire them to see the world around them in new ways.

Susan Goldman Rubin has written acclaimed books for young readers, including L’Chaim, A Sydney Taylor honor-award book and a New York Public Library Best Books for the Teen Age, Searching for Anne Frank; Margaret Bourke-White, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults; and Steven Spielberg, named one of the New York Public Library’s Best Books for the Teen Age. She lives with her husband in Malibu, California.From Booklist:
On pages as brightly colored and eye-popping as Warhol's work, Rubin presents a concise, picture-book biography of the artist's life, starting with lengthy coverage of his Pittsburgh youth. Rubin targets a young audience in her coverage, focusing on Warhol's artworks rather than his film career and adult personal life. In clear, straightforward language, she draws connections between the artist's inspirations and his art, supporting the information with numerous quotes, including many from Warhol's nephew James Warhola, the author of the picture book Uncle Andy's (2003). An extended time line further fills in the story, and a glossary offers accessible definitions. The design, featuring excellent reproductions of Warhol's work on nearly every page, makes this an even more appealing introduction to the icon. Source notes for direct quotes and a bibliography are appended. For older readers, suggest Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan's Andy Warhol: Prince of Pop (2004). For more picture-book artist's biographies, see Core Collection: "Short Takes on Creative Lives" on p.64. Gillian Engberg
