Lot Essay

"I like money on the wall. Say you were going to buy a painting. I think you should take that money, tie it up, and hang it on the wall. Then when someone visited you the first thing they would see is the money on the wall" (A. Warhol in A. Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: From A to Z and Back Again, New York 1975, p. 134).
