$2 Mil Warhol Sketch Found At Garage Sale

April 2, 2012 by staff 

$2 Mil Warhol Sketch Found At Garage Sale, This is the second story in less than a week about someone finding hidden treasure in an unlikely place. A guy bought what experts believe is an authentic early Andy Warhol at a garage sale for $5.

Andy Fields, a businessman from Tiverton, England, said he purchased the colorful sketch from a man whose aunt once took care of the famed artist when he was a child. The illustration is believed to have been drawn when Warhol was 10 or 11 years old. The picture is of the 1930s actor and singer Rudy Vallee, and is signed “Andy Warhol” in the bottom right corner.

Questions about the authenticity of the the pop-art creation arose because the artist is believed to have changed his name from Andrew Warhola in 1949. Also, pop art is believed to have originated much later than the illustration would indicate.

But experts have verified the sketch as an original Andy Warhol and valued it in the low millions. Fields said he does not intend to sell the artwork. Instead, he wants to put it on display in an exhibit.
