Week of September 27 – Warhol On Beauty


Andy Warhol Beauty Quote

“Beauty really has to do with the way a person carries it off. When you see “beauty,” it has to do with the place, with what they’re wearing, what they’re standing next to, what closet they’re coming down the stairs from.” – Andy Warhol Beauty Quote (The Philosophy of Andy Warhol)

Andy once said that jewelry doesn’t make a person more beautiful, but it makes a person feel more beautiful. If you draped a beautiful person in jewels and beautiful clothes and put them in a beautiful house with beautiful furniture and beautiful paintings, they wouldn’t be more beautiful, they’d be the same, but they would think they were more beautiful. However, if you took a beautiful person and put them in rags, they’d be ugly. He thought that people could always make themselves less beautiful. Oh Andy and his notions of beauty.
