Childhood Warhol Painting Discovered

A childhood drawing by Andy Warhol was discovered by Andy Fields, from Tiverton, Devon, in Las Vegas where it was hidden among a pile of artwork. The poor vendor who sold it to him for $5 told him his aunt used to care for Warhol when he was a child. The painting, if authenticated could be worth $2 million.

The picture of Elvis, which is signed, is thought to have been created when the artist was just ten or eleven years old. The claim would make the drawing the earliest known example of his famous pop art style. If it really is Warhol’s piece, it’s funny how he knew to sign his work even at such a young age.
