Help me find my drawings!
In 1962, when I was 19, my father (Francis Minturn Sedgwick) sent me to the Silver Hill mental institution in Connecticut. I started to make drawings there. Mostly small. Mostly of animals.
I can’t find my drawings any more. And I’d really like to see them again. Here’s one of a horse, preserved because it was on my apartment wall in New York City when a magazine photoshoot was done.
If I can find any more, I’ll add them here.
And if YOU know where any of my drawings might be, please LMK in the comments below!
Edie Sedgwick Drawings – Update

Hey! I googled for more
Edie’s rat illustration:http://derclubhaus.blogspot.com.es/2011/01/rats-are-nice.html
I wonder where the other drawings are now.
OMG Jess! You found my rat drawing! Thank you so much!!! I haven’t seen that drawing in, like, 50 years! Gosh, I never thought I’d see it again. And what a wonderful page you found it on too. I just love that picture of Gwyneth Paltrow feeding her rat from a sipper. HOW FABULOUS!
Thanks for your help Jess! It really means a lot. I can’t tell you how nice it is to see my old work after so long. Sometimes I wonder what my life might have been if I’d done more of that work and less of the other stuff. Maybe I would have lived longer. IDK. It’s easy to second guess, I guess. I guess life just is what it is.
Anyway, thanks again Jess, I really appreciate it!
How’s your 2015 going so far?
(haha, mine is a lot like my 2014 so far! 🙂
Hey! you’re welcome. I would have loved to see more of your drawings,
people perhaps. (?)
I live in Barcelona, and there was a graffiti artist (I think he`s french) who did a portrait from you:
Well…my 2015 is still an extension of the 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 …
I’m looking for a new job as a fashion illustrator.
but currently only interviews and waiting, waiting.
Sometimes I would have to value myself more…. I also don’t know…
Hey Jess, sorry for the late reply – I sleep A LOT these days! 😛
Anyway, fashion illustration – that’s awesome!
Do you have stuff online I can look at?
I found a bunch of your drawings here:
There’s even the one you did on s plate. I didn’t know you did that!
Well, I’m glad I found these, I’ll keep looking for more.
They’re down around the middle of the page.
Your rat drawing sold for $24,000 to an unknown buyer at Sotheby’s last November, a few days after the anniversary of your death. It was part of a bunch of artwork put up for sale by Jean Stein’s estate. They’d expected to get only $800 to $1,200 for it.
