About the Work
Andy Warhol created this limited-edition multiple in 1971 for a casino-themed fundraiser for Experiments in Art and Technology. The money was printed by the American Banknote Company on the same paper used for U.S. currency at the time (minus the threading employed for anti-counterfeit measures). Originating from the estate of E.A.T.'s founder, these bills are extremely rare.
Andy Warhol is one of the leading figures of the pop art movement, whose iconic screenprints of the mundane, the famous, and the tragic - serialized and reproduced endlessly - brought the high and the low onto the same level, complicating notions of value, desire, consumerism, and death. His highly regarded circle of friends, icons, and personalities largely defined the zeitgeist in the 1960’s and 70’s, the epicenter of which was Warhol’s infamous studio, The Factory. Rumored at first to have been called Hollywood, the studio produced superstars from Nico to Billy Name, as well as groundbreaking films like “Chelsea Girls” (1966), ”Empire” (1964), and “Blow Job” (1963). In 1969, Warhol founded Interview Magazine, a collection of intimate conversations with cultural influencers. With his untimely death in 1987, Warhol left behind an immeasurable legacy whose relevance has yet to waver. Today, Warhol’s works ranks as some of the most expensive ever sold; many can be found in the artist’s hometown of Pittsburgh at the Andy Warhol Museum, the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist.
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
