Andy Warhol's superstars

Andy Warhol, the father of pop art, enjoyed a complicated relationship with the women in his life. While he idolised many of his iconic muses - and they, the "superstars" of his Factory studio, adored him - he has also been portrayed as a controlling misogynist; the man whom feminist writer Valerie Solanas infamously shot in the chest after a row over a script in 1968. What's for certain is that he was drawn to headstrong, unconventional and expressive women who weren't afraid to be themselves.

On the 25th anniversary of Warhol's death, we look at some of the key women in his life, with photos of both the muses themselves and the art they inspired. Click on to delve into the world of Warhol's divas...
