Andy Warhol

Female Figures and Fashion Accessories

About this artwork

The world of fashion had always fascinated Andy Warhol and it hugely influenced his work – from his early commercial illustrations in the 1950s of women’s shoes and handbags to his depictions of celebrities and models in his iconic screenprinted portraits. This work shows a variety of vibrant clothes and fashion accessories rendered in Warhol’s characteristic blotted-line technique. Annotations such as the one suggesting that the cardigan should be pink rather than grey imply that this is perhaps a draft design for a magazine spread. As the coloured inks were almost certainly added by a friend or assistant at one of Warhol’s famous colouring parties, this may explain the decision to alter the colour.
