Warhol Drawings

Believe it or not, Andy Warhol was an illustrator before he sold out to commercialism and started producing avant-garde tripe which now looks extremely dated (unlike the delectable Twiggy; see below). He drew this illustration of The Little Red Hen for a children's book in the late 1950's. Not brilliant, but better than anything he produced once he became famous. Four of these drawings go for auction in New York on 9 December, estimated value £355 ($600). Stocking filler?
