Introduction: What is After the Party?

Andy Warhol was a famous American artist born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who is widely recognized for his contributions to pop art and the history of photography. He quickly became a successful a commercial illustrator in New York City, and his work developed into other areas such as films, advertisements, parties, and even music. He also began to experiment with painting and sculpture in his later life. What sets Warhol apart from other artists is that he has created products that are sold through mass production. This differs from many other artists who have created their own works of art or have their work sold only as unique products. However, Warhol’s work is actually very unique as well. He is known for his various series of paintings that depict a specific subject such as Campbell’s Soup Cans or Marilyn Monroe. This is where the idea for his most famous piece “After the Party” comes into play. Warhol often created multiple images of the same subject, and “After the Party” is no exception.
