Andy Warhol Dollar Sign $, 1982; Warhol further addresses his fascination with mass consumption in Andy Warhol unique screenprint $ (4), 1982 (Dollar), specifically with the iconography of the dollar symbol itself. This phenomenal complete set of screen prints 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 - this effect is created in part by the screenprint, but also by the contrasting colors of the dollar signs against the background. In $ (4), 1983 (Dollar), a mustard yellow background is covered with red, purple, lilac and green dollar signs. The green dollar sign itself could be a reference to money in its material form. Warhol here makes a fearless statement, for he blatantly acknowledges that money is art, and art is money.
