Andy Warhol graduated from Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh in 1949, when he moved to New York City to pursue a career as a commercial artist, his work first appearing in Glamour magazine in September 1949. In the late 1950s, Warhol began to devote more energy to painting, extending his talents into other fields such as film, publishing, writing, television, and music. Warhol had a life-long fascination with Hollywood, and in 1962 he began a large series of celebrity portraits, including Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Elizabeth Taylor. Also in the 1960s, Warhol began to make films, and he created the multimedia show The Exploding Plastic Inevitable, featuring the rock and roll band The Velvet Underground. Warhol continued to produce a prolific number of paintings, prints, photographs, and drawings—Mao, Skulls, Shadows, Dollar Signs, Camouflage, and many more—over the next two decades until his death in 1987.
