The fifth volume of The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné has been published by Phaidon Press. Volume 5 documents Warhol’s paintings from 1976-1978 that were produced at 860 Broadway, the studio he occupied for a decade, from 1974 to 1984. This volume includes 733 paintings, featuring the Skull and Hammer and Sickle series, two of Warhol’s most powerful bodies of work. Other chapters document his commissioned portraits, a portrait series of famous athletes, the Torsos and Sex Parts paintings, and a group of self-portraits. The abstract Piss, Oxidation and Cum series, which were Warhol’s first paintings to be produced without a camera since 1962, mark a radical departure in his art.
Volume 5 is edited by Neil Printz with Sally King-Nero as Executive Editor. Printz has edited all five volumes of The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné. Started in 1993, this multi-volume scholarly project, sponsored by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, will document all of Warhol’s work in paintings, sculptures, and drawings. Single volumes are dedicated to a particular period, starting with Volume 1, which covers Warhol’s paintings and sculptures from 1961-1963. Each work is thoroughly researched; catalogue entries include detailed records of provenance, exhibitions, and relevant literature as well as supplementary illustrations and annotations recording Warhol’s visual sources and reconstructing his exhibitions. The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné presents the most exhaustive record of Warhol’s work and serves as a testament to Warhol’s enduring importance in contemporary culture.
Volume 6 is currently in preparation. Owners of works by Andy Warhol are encouraged to contact the Foundation by submitting this owner information sheet through our website.
