Review: The Trip: Andy Warhol's Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure

The Trip: Andy Warhol's Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure The Trip: Andy Warhol's Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure by Deborah Davis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The trip described in the title is just one part of this book that is actually a biography of the Pop artist. Having previously known only the bare facts of Warhol and his art, I found this book very interesting and informative, a comprehensive look at all the elements of the various movements in New York during the 1960s and 1970s.

Although I'd never call myself a fan of Pop art or of some the artists during that time, I learned why their visions and their techniques are considered so important.

For those who love art in all its manifestations, this is a book to read. May I also suggest another of Deborah Davis's books, "Strapless," which is the story of John Singer Sargent and the woman who became known as Madame X. Davis is an exceptional writer.
