Introduction by Ivan Vartanian. "When Andy Warhol arrived in New York City from Pittsburgh in the early 1950's he had little money, no name recognition, and few acquaintances. He dd, however, possess a keen sensibility, a fresh eye, and ambition. Quickly he earned considerable distinction for his whimsical and lithe illustrations, which graced the pages of life-style magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, and were used in the advertisiting campagins of clients including Tiffany & Co. and I. Miller and Sons, among others. Fanciful shoes, bouquets of spring posies, and napping cats are familiar motifs, from this early period of Warhol's work. In addition to these charming images, Andy Warhol, Drawings and Illustrations of the 1950's features some of his first gold and silver foil renderings, rubber-stamp drawings, and early erotic portraits. These illustrations are accompanied by an introduction and extensive chronology of the events in his pivotal period of Warhol's career, from 1949-1960." -Book jacket.
