NEW Art Book will include Andy WarholLes Fox
N.Y. Times bestselling authors Les and Sue Fox are doing research for a new book titled "The Art Buyers Handbook" to be published in 2011 or 2012. This book will feature stories of real people who bought valuable art at garage sales, flea markets, local auctions and estate sales. Did you know that a masterpiece by Joseph Decker ("Ripening Pears") was bought at a garage sale in 2001 for $5, and sold to the National Gallery Of Art in 2004...for $1,000,000? If you or someone you know has purchased a genuine painting by Andy Warhol for a fraction of its AskArt value, we would like to publish your story in our book. Your name will be kept confidential, unless you want us to publish it. The facts must be verified, and we will need photos of your painting (original oil or watercolor, not a print, lithograph or limited edition.) Thank you. Les Fox.

Value of Photograph of Andy Warhol and FriendsJennifer Davis
I have a photograph I would like to try and find the value (if any).
It it of Andy Warhol with 3 or 4 others - one I believe to be Bianca Jagger and another lover, Jon Gould. But, I am not positive or have any idea about the others.
The photo is about 8x10 (I haven't measured), black/white, and is in excellent condition.
The photo is owned by a friend of mine who got it directly from the photographer, Tim Hursley. From my understanding, there are only 3 prints in existence - one by the photographer, the one I have, and the other is in a museum in Texas.
Does anybody have any ideas on how I can find the value of this?
Thanks in advance....
signed Campbell's soup can labelBob Olson
Does anyone know how I can establish a value on a Campbells soup can label signed in black marker pen? I think it was one of 300 done for Campbell employees.

John Wayne Henry Norcross
I purchased a John Wayne print which is marked unique on the written on the front in pencil . I have researched this and have read that unique John Waynes were marked unique on the verso .I was wondering if anyone knew much about these particular prints as I am based in New Zealand and there are limited Warhol authorities here.
Andy warhol Art Authentication Board
Jusrt watched a very interesting documentary on the BBC titled Warhol: Denied.
Joe Simon bought a piece of Andy Warhol art for $195,000. But the seemingly capricious Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board deemed it not to be Warhol's work, even though it has been previously authenticated on three seperate occassions by his executors as well as the Warhol foundation president. All of Warhol employees remember the painting well. The Board OKs questionable mass-produced stuff from the Warhol Factory so this seems insane.
The Manhattan-based art historian John Richardson, a friend of Warhol’s, owns several paintings that Warhol gave to him as presents, but says on the program he wouldn’t “dare submit these things to the board for fear of being told they’re not by Andy”. The Authentication Board’s judgments seem so capricious that you wonder if its work isn’t some kind of performance art, a deathbed prank bequeathed by Warhol to make a continuing mockery of the art establishment.
Richardson, in any case, queries the very concept of authenticity in relation to an artist who mass-produced art the way Warhol did — and who did it so shamelessly that he even named his studio The Factory. “He used to do these silk screens,” Richardson explains, “and assistants would come in at night and run off a few copies for themselves. But did that make them any less authentic than the ones they ran off for Andy during the day?”
Not only did Warhol mass- produce art, he often couldn’t be bothered to sign it. So friends stepped in; with surreal consequences. “I’ve heard that Sotheby’s will authenticate an ‘S&H Green Stamp’ poster if it has my forged Andy Warhol signature on it,” says Warhol’s friend and curator of the artists first retrospective, Sam Green. “If somebody else has forged the signature, then it’s not an Andy Warhol.” Sam Green remembers turning down Simon's portrait for his 1965 retrospective and is puzzled by their decision.
So is Paul Morrissey, warhol's manager and film director. He states that Warhol asked him to arrange the trade of Simon's painting for the extension of a loan of video equiptment, which enabled Warhol to become the worlds first video artist.
How can a group of people with no direct connection to Warhol and his work simply ignore the testimony of those who worked closely with the artist? Why such secrecy?
authentication board stampwalter
Hello, Would anyone send me a photo of this stamp? I would like to know what it looks like. If I come across one, I want to know I am looking at the correct stamp. Also, how do they mark the ones they turn down----"denied"? thank you, Walter.
Twenty Five Cats and One Blue PussyJoe Cardarelli
I acquired a print from one of Andy's collections called 25 Cats and One Blue Pussy. The original works were illustrations for his book by the same name. The print (The One Blue Pussy), although signed, appears different in color intensity than ones that I've seen in a print catalogue. Someone metioned that these 1954 prints were painted in water color and some may appear different. Can anyone confirm any of this and perhaps provide any additional history ?
Potted Flower 1957Terry McElfresh
I have aquired a Warhol picture that looks like the 1957 Potted Flower picture.....except mine is a gold background, not blue as shown on the web. I have also had Brewster & Company certify it as genuine Warhol. Any idea of value or history?
It's a little known fact that when he was a child andy warhol collected stamps and shells which became the inspiration for his most famous piece "campbell's soup can; tomato".
I am interested in any info about Warhol's "sex
part series". The subject
seems to be "Victor Hugo".
Looking for any more info
about these lithos. Please
e-mail with any knowledge you can shed on this series. firstname.lastname@example.org

The Andy Warhol Museum has a new web
site and special online project
developed with Intel's ArtMuseum.net called One Stop Warhol Shop. Contrary
to its name, this is not e-commence, but an interesting streaming media
presentation on Warhol and his work.
