This event has ended.

Andy Warhol is arguably the best-known artist from the second half of the 20th Century. Works such as Double Elvis, Gold Marilyn, Flowers and his Campbell’s Soup Cans have become iconic canon in the history of art. In 2011 a batch of drawings from the 1950s – the first decade Warhol spent in New York – was discovered among the works he left in his estate. In these early drawings, Warhol already establishes a precedent for his subsequent work: one finds Portraits, Flowers, Riots, Guns, Car Crashes, and Famous People. The care and precision with which he crafted the drawings establish Warhol as a sensitive and ingenious draftsman. A selection of works from this era will be on view in the gallery’s second floor exhibition space. Fashionable women, recognizable portraits, and female figures predominate the grouping and nod to Warhol’s lively and engaging social life and the inspiration it provided for his future work.
