The Autobiography of a Snake

Drawings by Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol


Noa the Boa is a slave to fashion with the heart of an actor and an obsession with celebrity. He becomes luxurious leather accessories for illustrious clients – from Grace Kelly’s pillow to the codpieces at the Folies Bergère – in a high-fashion gift book for adults that is whimsical, and a little bit naughty.

This charming story and never-before-published, rarely exhibited drawings by one of the world’s most beloved artists, are a veritable who’s-who of celebrities of the 1960s, from Chanel, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy, to Diana Vreeland and a couple of Rockefellers.

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is often cited, next to Jackson Pollock, as among the top American artists of the last century. Others name him, alongside Pablo Picasso, as one of the most important 20th-century artists in the world. Wherever one places him, Warhol's reach is indisputable. His visual vocabulary has become a part of the vernacular from which it originally came. Even his prescient 1968 statement 'in the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes' has become as ubiquitous as the 24-hour news cycle itself.
