Portrait of the artist Andy Warhole1928-1987 Andy Warhol was America's most famous artists. He was regarded as a revolutionary, eccentric and inventor of Pop Art and was all of the mentioned at the same time. Art criticism is celebrating it with predicates as yet no artists were awarded, not even Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. Alfred given Nemeczek: "They (the predicates) ranged from" pop star "to" pop artist ", where the" pop genius "by the" pop princes "to" Prince of Pop "and continue up to" Pop King "," pop Tsar "and" Great Mogul ". However," high priest "and" Pope of Pop "is the" "baptized" Picasso of Pop-art. (Artist - Critical Dictionary of Contemporary Art)

Warhol was born in Pittsburgh in 1928 and died in 1987 in New York. The son of Czech immigrants went to the high school as a student at the Carnegie Institute of technology in Pittsburgh. In 1949 he settled in New York, to debut three years later with his work at the Hugo Gallery. Until then, he worked as a commercial artist for fashion magazines, and designed Christmas cards, LP covers and weather maps for the television. Soon after, however, the artist had the idea to put objects of everyday life in the centre of his pictorial motifs. The graphics offered him for the medium and sought-after cult objects were created.

The most famous silkscreen prints are the pictures of the red-and white soup cans of Campbell, as well as the two dollar bill. With these works Warhol is one of the artists who radically in the US and England broke since the 50s with the artistic tradition and a new art movement, the Pop Art was created.

Roy Lichtenstein and Tom Wesselman include not only Warhol to the American officials who were their pictorial themes in the world of advertising, comics and the superstars of Hollywood. Elvis Presley, Jackie Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe have become icons in Warhol's repertoire of images.

The collection of everyday motifs into a work of art is this the opportunity to obtain a level of attention that it has as a matter repeatedly used ever. Warhol called by his way of photographic reproduction of the object that it needs to act by itself. The works in which he implemented repetitions of the same subject, make this claim and act but also by its colour transformations. The artist sees the world as it is and presents them: "I am extremely passive. I take things as they are. I watch just, I observe the world. "

Porcelain is formed by turning or pressing. Figural representations are cast. Complex molds have to be cast in sections and then "applied". After molding, the pieces are dried and "burnt" at about 900 °C. After that, the glaze is applied and fired at temperatures between 1,240 °C and 1,445 °C. In major manufactures, the porcelain is painted by hand with each color separately and has to be burned in compliance with narrow temperature tolerances.

The porcelain was invented in China and became widespread in Europe in the 16th century. The first European porcelain factory was founded in Meissen in 1710.

Other famous European porcelain factories are Fürstenberg, Höchst, Schwarzburger Werkstätten, Lladró, Nymphenburg, KPM, Augarten, Sèvres, Limoges, Royal Copenhagen, Worcester. Individual factories label their products with the porcelain brands that serve to identify their origin.

In the early 1950s, a jolt went through the cultural scene. Young artists from the US and England - completely independently of each other - severed their ties with all the traditions of artistic creativity and helped the modernity to achieve a new art movement.

In the US there were Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann and James Rosenquist who were seeking their themes in the world of advertising and comics, in star cult and anonymous urban culture. With flash coloring, overdimensioning and manipulating depth perspective they created new provocative works that breathed the spirit of the time. Richard Hamilton and Eduardo Paolozzi are to be considered as the true pioneers of Pop Art in England thanks to the famous exhibition "This is Tomorrow" at London's Whitechapel Art Gallery. In the 1960s, they were followed by David Hockney, Allan Jones, Peter Phillips and Derek Boshier.
