Just days after the death of Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol produced the first of his Marilyn silkscreen portraits. Solidifying Warhol as master of pop art, the Marilyn portraits have continued to appreciate. On May 9th 2022, Christie’s auctioned Warhol’s “Shot Sage Blue Marilyn” to an unnamed buyer for $195M — a record for the most expensive piece of art ever sold. It isn’t only Warhol’s early portraits that command premiums at auction. The market for Warhol’s prints has regularly outperformed financial markets including the S&P 500, according to Art Radar Journal. #WARHOL1 is a 1967 Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe Signed Print, 1 of just 250 examples.
