As one of the founding fathers of Pop art, Warhol reinvented powerful symbols of American culture and consumerism, from Coca-Cola advertisements, to Hollywood icons, to the American Dollar, one of Warhol’s most instantly recognisable subject matters. As the inaugural motif for his earliest silkscreen works, the dollar revealed the immense importance of ‘greenbacks’ for Warhol as not only a decorative item but also a culturally and socially loaded signifier of success and the American Dream. Sotheby’s latest selling exhibition in New York features an array of Warhol’s early and late money works – click ahead to see highlights being installed in our galleries.
