Andy Warhol, Yoshitomo Nara, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein Feature in Phillips’ Upcoming AuctionApr 19, 2022 17:00 EDT - Apr 21, 2022 10:00 EDT
Andy Warhol was more than an artist. He was the king of Pop Art and culture. In a way, he invented popular art and turned a can of soup into an icon. Selected screenprints from Warhol lead Phillips’ upcoming Editions & Works on Paper auction. Warhol had a refined sense of color that was distinct from any other artists of his time. His flower screenprints include different shapes and colors, yet they all look standardized. The screenprints in color come in a set of ten and were published by Factory Additions in 1970. They are all signed in black ballpoint pen. Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, and Siberian tigers are also the subjects of Warhol’s colorful screenprints available in the auction.
Another notable figure with work in the catalog is Yoshitomo Nara. One of his works features a figure of a small girl on a clean background. This character is up to something in almost every Nara painting. A 2010 set of ten color prints by Yoshitomo Nara on Japanese paper is available. Each print shares the same muted pinkish-cream background. Nara is a prominent figure in contemporary art, and his works are representations of not only Japan’s but a global Pop Art movement. The auction also showcases the works of Helen Frankenthaler, Keith Haring, David Hockney, Jean Dubuffet, and Roy Lichtenstein, among others.
