From a modest family of Slovakian origin that immigrated to Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania in the 1920’s, Andy Warhol, whose full name was Andrew Warhola, was quick to display precocious artistic talent. After studying as a commercial illustrator at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, he set up in Manhattan in 1949.

He soon landed a contract with “Vogue” and “Glamour”, two magazines for which he drew women’s silhouettes and fashion accessories. Andy Warhol created the blurred line technique which met with acclaim.

He produced drawings with pen, inked over it and then pressed it onto another sheet of paper before the ink dried. The result obtained was an irregular and spontaneous drawing with an original hand-made feel. In the 1950’s, as an author the artist published books such as “In the Bottom of My Garden”, which were hand coloured and issued in limited series. The colourisation was carried out by friends of Warhol during evenings at the “Serendipity 3”, the café where he exposed his works. He founded Andy Warhol Enterprises Inc. and purchased a townhouse on Lexington Avenue, where he set up his workshop and moved in with his mother.
