    Collection of Walter Denny Uptegraff III, Ash Fork, Arizona
    By descent from above to present owner

    This work is accompanied by an opinion of authentication from the Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board, Inc., identification number A125.056.

    Literature:
    The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, 1994, illustrated p. 155

    Note:
    In 1945, Andy Warhol enrolled at Carnegie Tech, now known as Carnegie Mellon University. It was here that Andy received intensive criticism from his professors due to his outlandish subject matter and unconventional style. Warhol’s early involvement with pen and ink drawings and commercial illustration would later inform his desire to remove the gestural stroke of the artist. This drawing is an outstanding representation of his early work and exemplifies his continued interest in appropriating the world around him in simplistic yet provocative images of the everyday. Here, Warhol appears to be an onlooker, depicting a crowd of men, women and children who are casually waiting to depart.
