Why Warhol?

An unlikely, yet, possibly seemingly person. . .. Although, Not particularly much of . . . Anything. At first glance. A wig? Odd hair? Odd glasses? Eccentric? Soft Spoken? So why? Why and how did Andy Warhol come to change the landscape of Fine Art, and ultimately define what Pop Art is? Sure, there is Lichtenstein. Jasper Johns . . . Robert Rauschenberg . . . And I’m sure . . . Others. But, let’s be honest . . …. Did any of these OTHER artists get you off? When you saw art, and did your own bit of recon (because you were now newly minted into the art world) did any of these other artists get you off? In the pleasure zone? I doubt it. Lichtenstein. Sure. He had his own bit going on. But invariably, like EVERYONE, you landed on Warhol. His prints. His images . . . Etc.
