The provocative pop artist's on-screen experiments, newly brought to light in this essential reference work
In the 1960s, Andy Warhol (1928-1987) produced hundreds of film and video works-short and long, silent and sound, scripted and improvised. This catalogue raisonne of the artist's films, a complement to 2006's Andy Warhol Screen Tests, focuses on works he produced from 1963 to 1965. Detailed cataloguing of each work is combined with orienting and enlightening essays that cover Warhol's influences, source material, working methods, and technical innovations, as well as his engagement with the people he filmed and how they came to life on the screen. In addition, rich entries offer detailed summaries and analysis of more than a hundred individual works. The vigorous illustration program includes countless stills and documentary images to further elucidate the film works, including many that have circulated only rarely. Warhol's dynamic and creative approach to filmmaking redefined the genre, drawing audiences and receiving positive attention along with deep criticism. In 1970, he placed his films in storage for the next 14 years, taking them out of public view and distribution. During that time, critics and audiences could only piece together information about these works from hearsay, verbal accounts, and reviews. Since then, the works have been studied, preserved, and catalogued, culminating in this volume, which illuminates the true significance of Warhol's radical experiments in film and his mastery of the medium.

Reviews for The Films of Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonne: 1963-1965

What a treasure! It details the most courageous work of the 20th century's greatest taboo-breaker - especially welcome as so many taboos need breaking all over again. -Duncan Fallowell, Spectator 'Books of the Year
