  • Now open at Denmark's Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, "Andy Warhol: Early Works" presents around 300 previously unseen artworks by the groundbreaking pop artist. The drawings date back to the 1950s and were all uncovered by German gallery owner Daniel Blau when he was granted access to Warhol's posthumous estate. Untouched since 1990, the minimal sketches demonstrate Warhol's keen eye and draw inspiration from the world of which he was himself a part of in his early youth, when he worked as a draughtsman and illustrator in the advertising and fashion industry.

    The exhibition will run through 21 February, 2013.
