"No artist in the second half of the 20th century was more famous -- or, perhaps, more famously misunderstood -- than Andy Warhol. This two-part film, directed by Ric Burns, explores Warhol's astonishing artistic output. Obsessed with fame and a desire to transcend his origins, Warhol grasped the realities of modern society and became the high priest of one of the most radical experiments in American culture, penetrating the barrier between art and commerce. Set within the turbulent, changing context of his life and times, this portrait is the first to move deeply into the immense archives at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the city of his humble origins."
