The Adorable Side of Andy Warhol: See 10 of the Pop Master's Little-Known Pet Portraits
Andy Warhol Cats and Dogs (Broadway), Early 1976

Pop art prince, adman, and cat lover? That's right. The famed Andy Warhol was a cat person, producing his limited-edition print book 25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy as early as 1954. It's no surprise that his dear feline friends and other cute quadrupeds made their way into the iconic serial portraits of Warhol's later Factory period. Whether they were his own, his friends, or private commissions, Warhol's animal portraits continue to be a loved and celebrated part of the artist's extensive oeuvre. 

From the most complete and authoritative resource on Warhol, Phaidon's Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné Collection, here are ten of our favorite pet portraits from the artist's most productive decade.
