Andy Warhol (1928-1987)
The Collection of Robert Shapazian "In a certain sense, Warhol was a follower of Duchamp. When he asked an assistant, Nathan Gluck, to bring some cardboard boxes from the supermarket near his house, he was disappointed when Gluck brought back boxes with elegant designs. Andy wanted something more common...But Warhol was not anti-aesthetic in quite the way Duchamp was. Duchamp was trying to liberate the art from having to please the eye. Warhol's motives were more political. He really liked the fact that what Americans eat is always the same and tastes predictably the same" (A. Danto, Andy Warhol, New Haven, 2009, p. 56).
