Shoes, Shoes, Shoes collects the outrageous and bedazzling images of shoes - from spikes to boots to mules - that are some of Warhol's icon images. Accompanied throughout by witty Warhol quotations, such as "I decided that being a shoe salesman is a really sexy job, " these forty drawings, prints, and watercolors demonstrate the Pop master's special talent for transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. The art has been culled from the archives of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and includes never before published rarities as well as popular prints from Warhol's heyday. Warhol fans will want to try this book on for size, and will be amused by the dream of fantastically shod feet.
Andy Warhol was an accomplished advertising illustrator and graphic artist before he became well-known as a Pop artist and celebrity. He died in 1987.
