This chapter presents an obituary of Andy Warhol, a leading figure in the visual art movement known as Pop Art, who was shot in 1968 by radical feminist writer Valerie Solanas. Warhol was arguably more responsible than anyone else for obliterating the line between the avant-garde and mass art. As it happened, the shooting of Warhol had a political dimension, at least in Solanas’s mind. A couple of Warhol’s obituaries solemnly refer to Solanas as a member of a group called S.C.U.M., or Society for Cutting Up Men. Warhol, who once said “I like my paintings because anyone can do them,” died in 1987.

Keywords:   obituary, Andy Warhol, Pop Art, Valerie Solanas, avant-garde, mass art, S.C.U.M, Society for Cutting Up Men
