A total of 12 illustrations by pop art master Keith Haring, featuring his recognizable motifs, have hit a Sotheby’s digital auction, following an online sale of 23 iconic works on paper that defined Haring’s visual vocabulary.
Created in 1985, the selection of illustrations, aka the Pop Shop Drawings, portray Haring’s recognizable subjects in various expressions. Each work measures 11 by 14 inches and were instrumental studies for Haring’s famous silkscreen prints and wearable art merchandise.
“These equally-sized ink on paper compositions showcase a comprehensive overview of Haring’s characters and motifs that underpin his specific interest in the socio-political themes of his time,” said Sotheby’s in a statement.
Keith Haring’s Greatest Hits: The Pop Shop Drawings runs until March 15, 2021 digitally. View select drawings in the gallery below and visit Sotheby’s website for more info.
