1. Andy Warhol Paintings - Celebrities Troy Buckner, Southampton NY
2. Introduction A private art dealer based in Southampton, NY, Troy Buckner previously owned and operated Clark Fine Art in Southampton. Troy Buckner now provides clients in and around New York, NY, with works by such 20th-century artists as Andy Warhol and John Chamberlain. Andy Warhol, one of the most important artists of the 20th century, transformed the painting world by championing the “pop art” movement, which focused on subjects common to everyday life such as soup cans and celebrity icons. His paintings are much desired on the international art market today.
3. Andy Warhol During his life, many of Warhol's of subjects were actually his close friends. Take, for example, Liza Minnelli, who was close to Andy Warhol and owns a collection of his works. The artist produced several portraits of Minnelli in his now-iconic style featuring an emphasis on a simple, primary color palette. He used the same strategy in his portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Mao Zedong. Minnelli's collection includes 22 of his works, four of which are portraits of her and the remainder of which are portraits of other celebrities, including Judy Garland.
