Most often seen as the crown prince of the avant-garde,Warhol's drawings provide clear evidence that draughtsmanship sat at the verycenter of his artistic life. He learned to draw in the most academic mannerfrom his years at Carnegie Tech. This skill was further honed during his stayon Madison Avenue working as an illustrator far commercial advertising. Takentogether these two experiences resulted in a finely wrought, clean, quick linewhich created the essential artistic skeleton on which all of his art wasbuilt. I would hazard the opinion that Warhol was every bit the draughtsmanthat Ingres, Holbein, or even Picasso was," said Thomas Sokolowski,director for The Andy Warhol Museum.

Along with the drawings produced for his commercial work inthe fashion and advertising industries during the 1950s, also sketched intimate portraits of his friends. Occasionally he would add goldleaf to a drawing to enhance the glamour and seductive qualities of the image.

During the early Andy Warhol 1960s, especially the periodfrom 1962 when he started to use photo-silkscreen painting, Warhol's drawingshave an experimental and exploratory feel. They combine elements ofphotography, collage, written instructions of working studies, and, onoccasion, finished pencil and colored crayon or watercolor. Please purchase ononline
