Historical Description

Andy Warhol $ (Dollar), 1981-1982 depicts the ubiquitous dollar sign, one of Warhol's favorite symbols recurring frequently in his work.  The symbol dynamically fills the delicate peach-pink canvas, exuding energy and excitement through its sketch-like form. Warhol's love for popular culture imagery and keen eye for color is here manifested through several layers of deep red, forest green, and a smoke-like gray combining to form the symbol that is arguably as much part of pop culture as an image of Marilyn Monroe. In this wonderful unique work, Warhol masterfully draws our attention and celebrates both consumerism and our modern culture.

Created in 1981-1982, $ (Dollar) is a polymer paint screenprint on canvas hand signed by Andy Warhol (Pennsylvania, 1928 - New York, 1987) on verso. This is a unique and original work.
