Catalogue Note

The period of 1960-1980s in which Andy Warhol was active, saw a transformation of the US economy and the maturity of American capitalism. Just as he depicted the products of the new consumer culture in series such as the Campbell Soup cans and the Brillo boxes, his series of Dollar Sign paintings capture the essence of the American economy – money. As the ultimate embodiment of wealth, but also of status and power, the dollar sign is exactly the kind of universally recognizable symbol that perfectly captures the American zeitgeist, making it an ideal subject for Andy Warhol.
