Edited by John G. Hanhardt, with essays by Bruce Jenkins and Tom Kalin, and entries by Jonathan Flatley, Elena Gorfinkel, Claire K. Henry, Bruce Jenkins, Tom Kalin, Homay King, Ara Osterweil, Marc Siegel, Juan Antonio Suárez, and Gregory Zinman
The Films of Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné, 1963–1965 focuses on the films Warhol produced in these early years when he first started working with the medium. Many of Warhol’s best-known films—including Sleep (1963), Empire (1964), Vinyl (1965), and Outer and Inner Space (1965)—were made during this period of intense creativity. Insightful introductory essays discuss Warhol’s influences, source material, working methods, and technical innovations, as well as his engagement with the performers, writers, and other collaborators who participated in his groundbreaking films. Comprehensive entries offer detailed cataloguing information, full descriptions, and critical analysis of more than a hundred individual works, accompanied by copious stills and behind-the-scenes photographs that provide fascinating visual documentation of the films.
This new volume is a complement to the landmark first volume of the catalogue raisonné, Andy Warhol Screen Tests: The Films of Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné, Volume 1, which was authored by the late film scholar and Warhol authority Callie Angell and published in 2006 to wide critical acclaim. A digitized version of Andy Warhol Screen Tests will be available on Yale University Press’s Art and Architecture ePortal in the spring of 2022.
