An exhibition of drawings by Andy Warhol will go on show at The New Art Gallery Walsall. Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is the most influential artist of the post-war period and this exhibition of early illustrative works will reveal an alternative side of Warhol’s character and career.
The unique collection of fifty early works on paper dating from c. 1950 to 1962 and four later drawings, demonstrate Warhol’s move between the worlds of commercial art and advertising and the New York Pop Art scene.
As Warhol developed his own concept of Pop Art, he himself became a household brand. His self-portrait along with those of Mick Jagger and David Hockney reflect his enduring fascination celebrity, fame and mortality.
