He called his book 25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy. He’d originally meant it to read Named Sam but his mother, who did the lettering, left the and Warhol believed that the last version was fine From the Purchased a brownstone where his mother and he resided And, although they had owned cats for twenty years, his series of cat portraits were not dependent on the cats that he understood with and lived. They were based on New York Cat Photographer Walter Chenoa’s photos.

From the curiosity with cats along with his interest in dogs climbed. His boyfriend decided that they should find a Dachshund puppy. They called the puppy Archie. Warhol became enthralled that he became his alter ego. He would deflect the questions when Warhol did not need to answer a question as he held Archie during interviews. Warhol took the puppy everywhere – to his studio, to art openings, to dinner, to photo shoots, and also to London when his job took him When Archie was Another Dachshund, three came into the picture. This puppy, they called Amos. The three of them got.

In the artwork Collector Peter Brant commissioned Andy Warhol to paint his Cocker Spaniel. Andy made drawings, in addition to two paintings of Ginger. Peter Brant enjoyed these so much that he believed Warhol should do a set of dog and cat drawings. Andy liked the idea. It would give him an opportunity to use Amos and Archie in his job and would open up a new subject of commission portraits. All he lacked was. Warhol liked to work from photographs. He had a tricky time having them stay and staging his pets. He chose to use animals for dog photos and his cat. Vincent Fremont in Art net called the final paintings of those stuffed creatures macabre and spooky. The paintings; however, that Warhol completed from photos of dogs and cats are reported to be lively and infused with character. After some time he began dabbling in other arts, including movies which explored the shock value of sexuality, greed, and nudity.
