Factory Made by Steven Watson

Book Description

Based on dozens of interviews and previously unpublished material, Factory Made is the most comprehensive account to date of the artistic aura in the 60s. During the period Warhol was producing his most iconic art: Marilyn, Campbell Soup and Brillo boxes, Steven Watson shows how the ever-changing cast of characters at the Silver Factory - an eclectic and eccentric mix of artists, poets, musicians, filmmakers, hustlers and drag queens - interacted to create more than five hundred movies, a now-classic rock album and thousands of photographs and paintings.

Eye on the Modern Century by Steven Watson Eye on the Modern Century, Hardback (December 2000)

A collection of letters written by Henry McBride, who became a towering figure in art criticism during a long career beginning in 1913. In the letters, McBride describes some of the most important events and personalities of 20th-century modernism.

Prepare for Saints by Steven Watson Prepare for Saints, Paperback (July 2000)

Perhaps the oddest and most influential collaboration in the history of American modernism was hatched in 1926, when a young Virgil Thomson knocked on Gertrude Stein's door in Paris. Eight years later, their opera "Four Saints in Three Acts" became a sensation. This is an account of how that revolutionary opera was born.
