During the 1950s Andy Warhol worked as a successful commercial illustrator in New York City, creating album covers, Christmas cards, book jackets, and, most notably, a continuing series of shoe ads. In this lecture, Meyer discusses the connections between Warhol's early career and the development of his iconic works of Pop art in the 1960s.
