Letter of Authenticity
America, originally published in 1985, presents photographs taken by Andy Warhol during his travels across the United States over the previous decade. His commentary reflects on multiple facets of US life, including money, style, death, the labor market, New York City street life, provincial oddities, artists, politicians, washed-up film stars, homeless people, the American dream, and even principles for choosing lovers.
Andy Warhol; born Andrew Warhola (August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987) was an American artist, film director, and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, advertising, and celebrity culture that flourished by the 1960s, and span a variety of media, including painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture. Some of his best known works include the silkscreen paintings Campbell's Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962), the experimental film Chelsea Girls (1966), and the multimedia events known as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable (1966–67).
