For decades, commentators have acknowledged Andy Warhol's phenomenal impact on contemporary art. Unlike the many existing books about the artist, "Regarding Warhol: Fifty Artists, Fifty Years" is the first full-scale exploration of his tremendous influence across several generations of artists. Examining in depth the Warhol sensibility, the book is organized around key themes: popular culture and tabloid news, celebrity portraiture, issues of sexual identity and gender, and practices such as artistic appropriation. Each theme is delineated with visual "dialogues" between key examples of Warhol's work and paintings, sculpture, and photographs by some fifty other artists, among them John Baldessari, Vija Celmins, Gilbert and George, Robert Gober, Nan Goldin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Douglas Gordon, Damien Hirst, Alex Katz, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Robert Mapplethorpe, Takashi Murakami, Bruce Nauman, Elizabeth Peyton, Richard Prince, Gerhard Richter, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, and Luc Tuymans. These juxtapositions not only demonstrate Warhol's overt influence but also suggest how artists have either worked in parallel modes or developed his model in dynamic new directions. The volume includes a major essay by critic Mark Rosenthal, commentaries by and interviews with a number of the artists featured in the book, and a visual archive and extensive illustrated chronology that chart the "Warhol effect" over the past fifty years.
