Fifty Important Works by Andy Warhol are on View at the Hay Hill Gallery
Andy Warhol, Double Marilyn (1981).
LONDON.- Fifty important works by Andy Warhol are on view at the Hay Hill Gallery this summer. The exhibition offers a rare and fascinating insight into Warhol’s creative mind and working processes, with an unprecedented number of works juxtaposed with their preparatory drawings.

Highlights include a unique collection of Andy Warhol’s Indians (Native Americans) (1986), exhibited alongside the working drawings. These seventeen works of art form an important part of Warhol’s oeuvre. They provide a rounded study of Warhol’s graphic process in the 1980s and a fitting manifestation of his later obsession with American culture, particularly the stories, myths and legends of the American West. Based on publicity and archival photographs as well as postcards, Warhol romanticises stereotyped and exploited images of American Indians including Mother and Child, Indian Head Nickel, Plain Indian Shield, Kachina Dolls, Sitting Bull, Geronimo and Northwest Coast Mask.

There is also a range of highly collectable works including The Scream (after Edvard Munch) (1984), part of a series of works based on the paintings of the Norwegian artist and Shadows (1978), from Warhol’s monumental Shadow series.

In the 1970s Warhol embarked on a remarkable and ambitious project, creating 102 paintings based on eight photographs of shadows that he had taken in his studio. The result is a compelling and almost hypnotic series, drifting into the abstract.

Additionally there are iconic images such as Double Marilyn (1981); Hammer & Sickle (1977) and Mobilgas (1985) as well as portraits of the collector Sidney Janis (1967) and dancer Merce Cunningham (1963).

"While screen-printing is one of Andy Warhol’s more familiar techniques, this exhibition separates the layers of Warhol’s final images to give a new and special perspective on their creation. When shown alongside the completed works, his detailed preparatory drawings reveal how hand-drawn outlines and painted brushstrokes provide a foundation for the printing process to create the final image," says Hay Hill Gallery director Mikhail Zaitsev.
