Andy Warhol was an American artist who is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential figures in 20th-century art. He was a leading figure in the pop art movement, and his works, characterised by their use of bold colours, commercial images, and repetition, challenged traditional art forms and redefined the boundaries of art and popular culture. Warhol’s innovative approach to art and his fascination with celebrity culture and consumerism continue to captivate audiences and inspire new generations of artists. He was a true visionary, and his impact on the art world and popular culture cannot be overstated. His works are held in numerous prestigious collections around the world and continue to be highly sought after by museums, galleries, and collectors. The $195 million sale of Shot Sage Blue Marilyn -1964 in 2022 saw the artist reclaim the title of American artist with the most expensive lot at auction, and the second-most expensive work ever to sell at auction.
