More than any other medium, drawing was central to Andy Warhol's creative output. Throughout his lifetime, the artist created thousands of drawings, observing and documenting the world around him. The late drawings from 1973-1987 employ a confident and fluid contour line to depict many of the same motifs of his iconic paintings: celebrity portraits, flowers and ads. Many of the drawings in this exhibition are on view for the first time.
