The exhibition, curated by Sir Norman Rosenthal, brings together Warhol's early works including Double One Dollar Bills, 1962 through to works he created before his passing in 1987.

A series of traced portraits, which the museum's director Alexander Sturgis describes as "essentially unknown," are part of the exhibition. Alongside this will be commissioned portraits of the 1970s and 1980s most rich and glamorous.

As well as these portraits, a selection of films on loan from The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, will be on show. Ten screen tests from 1964-66 of 20th century icons including Bob Dylan and Marcel Duchamp will be show. An hour from Warhol's unforgettable Empire, 1964, in which the artist created an eight hour static shot of New York's Empire State Building, will be part of the exhibition.

Andy Warhol: Works from the Hall Collection will be at the Ashmolean Musem, Oxford, until 15th May 2016. For more information, see here.
