Critical Review

In the early days of Warhol’s career, he worked as an illustrator for I. Miller shoe manufacturer, making weekly ads for the New York Times. Shoe And Leg is unique in the series as it depicts a leg wearing a shoe, rather than a shoe alone. Warhol and his friends hand-coloured the prints.The cursive hand across the series belongs to his mother, Julia Warhola, who transcribed many of the captions. The series title, La Recherche du Shoe Perdu, references Marcel Proust’s In Search Of Lost Time. This witty lithograph from early in Warhol’s career provides insight into his career to come.
