An opulent appreciation of Warhol’s complex relationship to women and femininity

Dedicated to Andy Warhol's (1928–87) portraits of women from the early 1960s through the 1980s, and featuring five trifolds and a tipped-on cover, Warhol Women explores the artist's female subjects and his complex relationship to myths and ideals of femininity, beauty and power.

Here, Blake Gopnik discusses the women essential to Warhol during his emergence as an artist, while Lynne Tillman examines his relationship with his mother. Brett Gorvy's interview with Corice Arman relays her experience sitting for two portraits by Warhol, and John Giorno (the subject of Warhol's film 
Sleep) contributes the poem "La saggezza delle streghe/Wisdom of the Witches." Alison M. Gingeras writes on women that played vital roles throughout his career, from Ethel Scull and Edie Sedgwick to Brigid Berlin, Pat Hackett and others.

Also included are source images and Polaroids of the women in Warhol's portraits.
