HON KONG.- From 12 to 24 September 2013, Sotheby’s Hong Kong will host a selling exhibition of Andy Warhol works, From Warhol, With Love, from S|2 - the private sale and gallery arm of Sotheby’s global Contemporary Art department, offering exceptional works of art through unique and important exhibitions throughout the world. Primarily devoted to the artist’s works on paper, this exhibition presents a rare opportunity to see a wide range of works that act as a window into the mind of the Pop genius. From Warhol, With Love will feature over 40 works, including some of the artist’s most highly covetable themes such as the gold leaf shoe, Ladies and Gentlemen and flowers. Highlights of the exhibition include a rare folding screen and a view of Hong Kong from 1956.

The exhibition will be open to the public at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery on the 5th floor of One Pacific Place, Admiralty from 10am to 6pm from Monday to Friday, and from 11am to 5pm on Saturday.

Miety Heiden, Head of Private Sales, Contemporary Art, says: “We are thrilled to showcase such an exceptional collection of works by Andy Warhol. This is Sotheby’s first Warhol selling exhibition in Hong Kong, and it marks a very special occasion to see such a wide variety of wonderful and commercial pieces by this artist offered in one place and the same time.”

Angelika Li, Gallery Director, Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery, says, “Sotheby’s Hong Kong is delighted to present From Warhol, With Love, a selling exhibition, as part of the celebration of Sotheby’s 40th anniversary in Asia. We are excited to bring this show from the S|2 gallery in New York - the private sale and gallery arm of Sotheby’s global Contemporary Art department - to Hong Kong for collectors and art lovers in this region.

“Andy Warhol’s drawings demonstrate how his fashionista instincts and artistic sensitivity brought his fame to another level. The unique drawings on offer in this exhibition aptly demonstrate the artist’s experimentation with different styles and techniques, and act as a window into the mind of this Pop genius. We particularly highlight the artist’s 1950s drawings, including Shoe (Alex Guiness), Ladies and Gentlemen, Untitled (Red Car), which embody his general characteristic aesthetics.”
