Andy Warhol.

Andy Warhol: Portraits
Phaidon, 2005

I just posted these because I like them. I finished the Patti Smith book on Sunday (v.v.v.v.good), and she mentions how Andy Warhol was an icon of Mapplethorpe's. He was the God of the NY Art World that everyone aspired to be. I got into Warhol in my twenties and read his diaries and all the books I could find on him. I don't remember much about him personally, only that I found him a bit spooky. He reminds me of the child catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
