Keith Haring’s ‘The Blueprint Drawings’ is a series of silkscreen prints that replicate the original, unique sumi ink drawings on vellum paper. Haring revisited the original ink drawings just a month before his death, creating a portfolio of 17 different screenprints. None of the original drawings sold when he exhibited them for a week in Manhattan, but he was successful in selling several of the blueprint copies, all of which he left untitled, leaving interpretation up to the viewer. Each drawing in the series explores themes of AIDS, sex, consumerism, and humanity in a bold black and white color palette. From an edition of 33 prints, “The Blueprint Drawings #5” is signed and numbered and has a height of 42 1/2 inches tall by 54 inches wide.
