L&M Arts presents a series of twenty-seven unique ink and watercolor drawings by Andy Warhol, c. 1958, of marvelous make-believe millinery that appeared in the 1964 holiday issue of McCall’s magazine. Designed with his particular brand of humor, each hat is identified with a popular fictional or historical character ranging from Scarlett O’Hara to My Fair Lady.

Accompanying this installation are Warhol’s drawings of shoes from the portfolio A la Recherche du Shoe Perdu, 1955. Collaged, hand-painted, and gilded, each of these drawings reference popular culture with dedications to film stars, fashion icons, and artists, and in doing so, anticipate the superstars and the society portraits that became synonymous with Warhol in the following decades.

Who's Who in Holiday Hats will run Thursday, December 15, 2011 through Saturday, February 18, 2012.
