As the preeminent American artist of the 20th century, Andy Warhol challenged the world to see art differently. Appropriating images from popular culture, Warhol created many paintings of Campbell's Soup Cans and Marilyn Monroe. Warhol's art was a mirror of his time, which is reflected in the mass media images he used in his art to confront aspects of American culture. Warhol said "If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface: of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There's nothing behind it."
While his work speaks eloquently of the concerns and issues of its moment, it also has a universality and conceptual power that transcend any particular period or artistic movement.
