The unique selection of early Andy Warhol works on paper dating from 1950s - 1962, demonstrate Warhol's move between the worlds of commercial art and advertising and the New York Pop Art scene. In the 1950s, Warhol was one of the best known and highest paid illustrators in New York. His colourful and whimsical drawings of people, animals, insects, shoes and accessories adorned advertisement features, shop windows, and book covers. 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.
