I admit it I am obsessed

I was wondering last night just how much it would cost to get my hands on a Warhol, an original painting, signed screenprint or a fabulous Brillo Box

I did some research and found a couple of reputable galleries who sell limited edition screenprints numbered and signed and also found some guidelines for sales of Andy's work.

It would seem that the most a Warhol has sold for is just under 12 Million USD for an original campbells soup can painting and about $4.5 Million for an original Liz Taylor painting.

A Brillo Box could set you back anywhere between $50k - 250K depending on who you believe, but be beware there is a 20 million dollar lawsuit with claims 250 of them were created 3 years after Andy died!

A limited edition screenprint of say one of my favorites - Campbells Chicken Soup will set you back somewhere between $5 - 10K or maybe a bit more.

But beware it's estimated that up to 20% of the works on the market are fakes (sounds like most artwork really). So now I just have to decide how I get what I want!

therss's a Warhol Exhibiton on in Woolhara at the moment, its way overpriced but they have a signed campbells soup box in the works there for sale, my favourite though is the howdy doody portrait in diamond dust...gorgeous! (but way overpriced!)

I keep on meaning to go and have a look, but I was warned that the prices were way over priced (by you I seem to remember)

anyway I still want to see the art!

Want to come with me next week for another look?
