An exploration of the work of American artist Richard Bernstein that celebrates his larger-than-life portraits for the covers of Andy Warhol's Interview magazine, as well as his visually arresting fine art, movie posters and album covers created from the mid-1960s to the 1990s.
Richard Bernstein, a fixture at Studio 54 and among fashion and art world insiders, captured the allure of the disco era through his iconic hyper-colored graphic portraits of superstars for the covers of Andy Warhol's Interview magazine. Warhol's influence on Bernstein's bold, playful and graphic artwork is obvious, and it was often thought that Warhol created the covers himself. Yet it was Bernstein, an American artist and art director, whose signature craft of retouching photographs with pastels, stencils and airbrush monumentalized his subjects into dazzling pop-art incarnations-sexy, captivating and forever young.
The book includes his legendary Interview covers of Madonna, Grace Jones, Mick Jagger, Cher, Calvin Klein, Michael Jackson and Aretha Franklin, as well as Bernstein's rarely shown artwork, album covers and editorial work for Time, Vogue Italia, New York Magazine and Playboy, complete with intimate anecdotes and interviews with his closest friends and collaborators. This volume is an essential addition to any fashion, pop culture, style or art lover's library.
