Historical Description

Warhol further addresses his fascination with mass consumption in this series of $, specifically with the iconography of the dollar symbol itself. This phenomenal screenprint exemplifies Warhol's playfulness with line and color, which he utilizes to add depth to his work. The four dollar signs, each consisting of three colors, are arranged in a rectangular formation and appear to pop out at the viewer. Warhol places a brilliant coral red as the background color and utilizes vibrant shades of yellow, blue and orange. His further use of vibrant colors is representative of the excessive nature of wealth and money. Warhol here makes a fearless statement, for he blatantly acknowledges that money is art, and art is money.

Created in 1982, this unique original color screenprint on Lenox Museum Board is hand-signed by Andy Warhol (Pennsylvania, 1928 - New York, 1987) in pencil in the lower right. Numbered from the edition of 35 in pencil in the lower right.
