After a decade in which he made virtually no drawings, Warhol suddenly began to draw again in late 1972. This extraordinary break in Warhol’s studio practice immediately confronts us with two questions: why did Warhol stop drawing in 1962, and why did he start again ten years later? Editor of The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné Neil Printz will touch on both, with particular emphasis on the latter, Warhol’s return to drawing in the 1970s.
Presented in association with the exhibition Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again, this lecture series will highlight various aspects of Warhol’s production across the entirety of his career.
