Andy Warhol studied art at the Carnegie Institute of Technology from 1945 to 1949. He then worked as an illustrator in New York City until 1960 when his comic strip paintings brought him fame.

Andy Warhol was born in 1928 in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. He started out as an illustrator and a commercial artist. His career took off when he produced the first of his window displays using enlarged comic strip images. He is most famous for presenting common things, like a Campbell's soup can, in a new and unique way. Here he uses images borrowed from Charles Schreyvogel and Frederic Remington and renders them in shades of red. ARTNews Magazine named Warhol one of the twenty-five most influential artists of all time.
