An Exhibition of Early Illustrations by Andy Warhol, Press Coverage

14 May 2018

Halcyon Gallery is proud to present An Exhibition of Early Illustrations by Andy Warhol, offering a rare glimpse into the formative years of one of the art world’s most celebrated names in the period before he became ‘The King of Pop’. Andy Warhol’s illustrations of the 1950s may be less well known than his later silkscreen prints of American icons, such as Marilyn Monroe or the Campbell's Soup cans, yet these seldom seen, hand-drawn illustrations in offset lithograph provide an incredible insight into the foundations of Warhol’s career as an artist. Indeed, these early works are of great importance to Warhol’s own artistic development; it was these whimsical illustrations that gained Warhol his initial recognition and which began his transformation into the ‘Andy Warhol’ that we know today.
