    Andy Warhol came to public attention as one of the leading lights of the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. Since then his art and legacy have polarised art critics and the public alike. This thin, pale, asexual man in a silver wig has been described as both a genius and a charlatan. His art, and maybe more importantly his approach to art, took him out of the galleries and museums into the public arena.
