In his time, Gustave Courbet battled against received normative aesthetics and wanted to paint anything and everything — more than just ’things of beauty’. Warhol, too, would explore anything and everything for its value as pictorial material.  
His exhibition at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm in 1968 bore the title, ‘ALL IS PRETTY’. For me, against the backdrop of art informel, Warhol was a revelation.
