Beyond Beauty (September 2017)
Federico Vercellone - Author
Sarah De Sanctis - Translator

Not long after that, Andy Warhol was reconciling the world of art with the world of everyday life, painting soup cans and soda bottles. In this book, Federico Vercellone provides an account of th...(Read More)
