An collection of Andy Warhol’s early drawings from the 50s is currently in exhibition in the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.
When you hear the name Andy Warhol, perhaps the first set of images that come into mind are made up of striking colors, soup cans, and multiple copies of Marilyn Monroe’s face.
But while it may seem as surprise to you, the artist known for his eclectic pop art masterpieces, also has a sensitive side to him as well — a side that you’ll be able to see once you step into the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark from this month until the next.
For the first time, a collection of more than 200 Warhol drawings from the 1950s will be on exhibition at the museum thanks to German gallery owner Daniel Blau, who amassed this treasure from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
The drawings shed a softer light to Warhol, with their fine lines and simplicity, a far cry from the loud, larger-than-life prints that he’s most known for.
Blau has also compiled the collection in a new book, From Silverpoint to Silver Screen: Andy Warhol 1950s Drawings, which will be sold at the gallery as well.
The exhibition will be open from January 8 until February 21, 2013.
