Andy Warhol / Drawings and Monotypes
We are pleased to announce that we will present an exhibition of extraordinary Warhol drawings at TEFAF this year, including a new discovery that is bound to cause a sensation.
During Daniel’s research of Warhol’s drawings from the 1950s – for his book “From Silverpoint to Silver Screen” – he discovered the photographic sources for several of Warhol’s drawings. We are delighted to present a number of these drawings alongside the photographs that inspired them.
Of the works in our exhibition, one drawing is of particular relevance in the Maastricht setting. In 1951 Andries Zwart, a 9 year old from Egmond-aan-Zee, and Jan van den Heuvel, a 12 year old from Amsterdam, were chosen to grace the Dutch Kinderzegels (postage stamps which additionally support Dutch welfare institutions). LIFE Magazine reproduced these stamps alongside photographic portraits of the two boys in their January 1952 issue. Warhol used these illustrations for one of his drawings (featured in our press release below). We will be showing the original drawing at TEFAF along with the 1952 copy of LIFE Magazine.
Warhol’s exquisite drawings have never before been shown in this context. We look forward to welcoming you to stand 443.
