HAYNES FINE ART CELEBRATES WITH WARHOL EXHIBITION
Haynes Fine Art, one of the UK's largest privately owned art dealerships, is hosting an exhibition of rare and previously unseen works by Pop Art legend Andy Warhol, from 3 November until 7 December 2016.
27 original works, many from the Warhol Foundation, have been gathered by Tony Haynes, Managing Director of Haynes Fine Art, to create a special exhibition to celebrates the launch of the dealership's new Pimlico gallery on the borders of Belgravia and Chelsea in London.
The collection includes 1950's illustrations, rare Polaroids and gelatin silver photographs of 1980's celebrities.

“We are excited to have secured this remarkable selection of works by Warhol,” says Tony Haynes. “They offer a unique opportunity to acquire a piece of Pop Art history by one of the world’s most famous artists. These are fantastic entry-level works for new collectors and rare one-off pieces for seasoned buyers. The opening of the new Haynes Fine Art gallery in Pimlico Road... is a major step as we celebrate 45 years of our business this year. It is a deep commitment not only to our international customers but also to our belief that London is the most important and vibrant art centre in the world.”
Andy Warhol was a talented photographer with a sense of curiosity and a great eye for detail. He was keen to document the period in which he lived. His early drawings feature fashion, fairies, flowers, footwear, creatures and female figures, in ink, tempera, watercolour and ball point pen, which was a medium Warhol often used for sketching.
