We are thrilled to announce that the Teylers Museum in the Netherlands will show over 50 early Andy Warhol (1928-1987) drawings in their Print Room this summer, following the success of our exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen earlier this year.
These works are among the 300 or so newly discovered Warhol drawings that have continued to cause a stir in Europe and the U.S. since being uncovered by Daniel Blau in 2011.
Many of the drawings are studies of the human form, inspired by photographs or magazine illustrations. They provide invaluable insight into Warhol’s formative years and reveal his skill as a fabulous draughtsman.
Andy Warhol was born in 1928 as son to Slovak immigrants in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. Following his apprenticeship as a window dresser he studied history of art, pictoral design, sociology and psychology from 1945 to 1949 at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Pittsburgh. He then went to New York as a commercial artist. As a painter, graphic artist, photographer and director of films, Warhol is considered a founder and main exponent of Pop Art. He died in 1987 in New York.
In the autumn this exhibition will move to the Graphische Sammlung in Munich.
