Andy Warhol: A Day in the Life​ ​pulls​ ​back​ ​the​ ​veil​ ​on​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​twentieth​ ​century’s​ ​most important​ ​and​ ​iconographic​ ​artists.​ ​As​ ​with​ ​many​ ​artists​ ​and​ popular​ ​figures,​ ​Warhol’s​ ​public persona​ ​and​ ​identity​ ​were​ ​tightly​ ​controlled—a​ ​brand​ ​in​ ​and​ ​of​ ​itself.​ ​Warhol​ ​once​ ​said:​ ​“If​ ​you want​ ​to​ ​know​ ​Andy​ ​Warhol,​ ​just​ ​look​ ​at​ ​the​ ​surface​ ​of​ ​my​ ​paintings​ ​and​ ​films​ ​and​ ​me,​ ​and​ ​there I​ ​am.​ ​There’s​ ​nothing​ ​behind​ ​it.”​ ​But​ ​the​ ​passage​ ​of​ ​time​ ​and​ ​accounts​ ​from​ ​those​ ​close​ ​to​ ​him reveal​ ​a​ ​different​ ​story.​ ​In​ ​particular,​ ​through​ ​his​ ​daily​ ​photographic​ ​habits,​ ​obsessive​ ​film​ ​and audio​ ​recording,​ ​and his interest in a wide range of subject matters,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​able​ ​to glimpse​ ​aspects​ ​of​ ​his​ ​more​ ​intimate​ ​world,​ ​offering​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​perspective​ ​on​ ​one​ ​of​ ​America’s most​ ​famous​ ​artists.
