Keith haring’s drawings of iconic symbols to fetch over $1 million

Sotheby’s New York will soon launch its Contemporary Art Day Auction featuring an impressive selection of works by leading post-war and contemporary artists including Keith Haring, Helen Frankenthaler, Alexander Calder, Tom Wesselmann, Ed Ruscha, Albert Oehlen, and Yoshitomo Nara. One of the most standout lots is a series of 23 works on paper by Keith Haring from 1982 that defined his signature visual vocabulary. The black-and-white pieces portray Haring’s bold marker drawings of his familiar cast of characters such as a human figure whose arm has morphed into a serpent, a UFO shooting rays and a barking dog with wings to name a few. These works would act as an index for his iconic subway drawings in the early 1980s. Read more at Hypebeast.
