THE ARTIST WHO LOVED WOMEN: THE INCREDIBLE LIFE & WORK OF PATRICK NAGEL, THE MOST SUCCESSFUL & ANONYMOUS AMERICAN ARTIST OF THE 1980S. Rob Frankel. Rob Frankel, Los Angeles, 2016. 294 pp. with 112 ills. (20 col.). 23 x 15 cm. LC 2016-905733 ISBN 9786926859281 In English.
Publisher's description: This is the only hardcover biography of Patrick Nagel, improbably the most successful American artist of the 1980s and 1990, and probably the most anonymous ever. This is the story of his strange, short, wonderful life and the colorful, odd characters without whom it all might never have happened. If you know who Patrick Nagel is, congratulations. If you don't, you know his work, as does half the world's population, who when viewing it, exclaim, "Oh yeah! I had that poster!" And they did. In the 1980s and 1990s, over two million Americans framed his work in their homes -- and almost none of them knew his name or his fascinating life story.
