Andy Warhol's Dollar Sign Estimated at £400k Up For Auction

Andy Warhol's Dollar Sign Estimated at £400k Up For Auction | biz | Scoop.it
Monday 22 June, 2015 Andy Warhol's Dollar Sign from 1982, estimated at £400,000-600,000, is one of the highlights of Bonhams Post-War and Contemporary Art Sale in London on 1 July. The work is arguably the best of its kind ever to come to auction.Unusually large for this series, and marked by its intensity and clarity of colour, this exceptional example is also fresh to the market. Composed of thick vivid paint forming five dollar signs against a jet black background, the painting embodies Warhol at his most animated.Dollar Sign is a case of Warhol not just making money out of art, but making art out of money. In his book, Warhol, David Bourdon writes that the series can be seen as "insolent reminders that pictures by brand-name artists are metaphors for money". That never bothered Warhol, who brazenly declared his interest in making money from his art with his Factory 'production line'.The artist wrote in The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: "I like money on the wall.

Murky past of Britain’s rarest duck revealed by Big Ben

Tuesday 2 June, 2015 The downfall of Britain's rarest duck, the common scoter, could be written in the murky sediment at the bottom of lochs in the Flow Country, the UK's largest expanse of wetland.To find out, scientists from WWT and UCL have been driving a giant sediment corer known as Big Ben into the bottom of the lochs. Big Ben removes cores made up of the layers that have built up over 30 to 50 years.Like an archaeologist digging down through time, but in miniature, WWT's Hannah Robson painstakingly sliced the cores and is now analysing each layer for microscopic fossils. By looking at what food was available and other factors, she can reconstruct the ecological history of the lochs and compare those where scoters still nest with those that have been abandoned.Over the same period, the number of common scoters breeding in the UK has fallen steeply and is down to just 40 pairs confined to remote parts of Scotland.Hannah Robson said:"The wetlands of the Flow Country are an incredi
