First edition. This catalogue for Warhol’s first major European retrospective proved to be hugely influential on Japanese photography during the Provoke era of the late-1960s and 1970s, both in terms of its design and through Warhol’s themes of consumerism and branding. It is divided into three sections: the first consists of black-and-white reproductions of Warhol’s work, followed by two sections of photographs of Warhol and his associates by Billy Name and Stephen Shore.
