Warhol Was Never Warholian

In their pic of the day, Daily Beast/Newsweek posted a shot recently of Warhol's "Nine Jackies" but also took the time to point out a problem with the "Regarding Warhol" show at the Met is that his followers were Warholian, but he himself was never working under another artist's mode. "A contemporary artist engaging in true Warholism, and truly worthy of the Met show, would have to have almost nothing in common with Warhol," Blake Gopnik suggests.
