Born in Pittsburgh on August 6, 1928, by Slovak immigrants, Andy Warhol, stage name of Andrew Warhola, was one of the most famous and beloved artists of the twentieth century.
Painter and sculptor, but also director and producer.
In 1949 he moved to New York, the city where he lived until his death, in 1987.
As a painter he was one of the main interpreters of American Pop Art.
Warhol's artistic career moved everything in New York culture, at the moment in which New York became the world capital of culture.
He moved in close relevance to underground environments, linking himself to the world of music, of the theater and cinema.
The beginnings of his painting date back to 1960, after a previous period in which he had worked as an industrial designer.
In 1963 he gathered around himself numerous young artists, creating a municipality to which he gave the name of "Factory".
Sandro Chia knew Andy Warhol well, being with his colleague Francesco Clemente a Factory visitor.
In the Warhol's artwork we are proposing here, the white background and the diamond dust - which Warhol reserved for a few portraits, such as that of Joseph Beuys - give the work a shimmering effect and an impression of lightness.
