Andy Warhol Unknown Female (c. 1957)

  • Not on view

Warhol made this work using the blotted line technique, a process he devised to transfer drawings from one sheet of paper to another by blotting wet ink. Flowers, fruit, and butterflies, like the ones that appear here in metallic leaf overlays, were among his favorite motifs.
