[a href="warren/images/photoEdits/warhol/johnLennon-BandW.jpg" target="_blank"]The black and white photograph[/a] that Warhol used is by Iain Macmilan, who also took the Beatles' 'Abbey Road' cover shot. Warhol used the same shot for both the orange portrait on the cover and the pink one on the reverse. The record was released in November 1986; Warhol died three-and-a-half months later in February of 1987.
Auction results: In November 2014, bidding on Andy Warhol's 'Triple Elvis (Ferus Type)' soared at Christie's in New York. At nearly 7-feet tall and taken from a publicity shot for the King's 1960 movie 'Flaming Star,' the painting — featuring three identical images of the musician in a gun-slinging pose — topped out at $81,925,000 USD, ahead of Warhol's 'Four Marlon' (shown below), which came in at $69.6 million USD.

Warhol worked obsessively for more than a year on this series, producing more than a hundred 'Last Supper' paintings, both silkscreened and hand-painted, that were some of the largest paintings of his career. The Milan exhibition that opened in January 1987 with a set of twenty-two silkscreens, was the last exhibition for the artist, who died a month later. It's also the largest series of religious-themed works by any US artist!

Auction results: According to [a href="http://www.economist.com/node/14941229" target="_blank"]The Economist[/a], 'Eight Elvises' did not leave the home of first-time owner Annibale Berlingieri, a Roman collector, for 40 years; but in autumn 2008, it sold for more than $100 million USD, in a deal brokered by Philippe Ségalot, the French art consultant. That sale was a world record for Warhol and a benchmark that only four other artists — Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre-August Renoir, Willem De Kooning, and Gustav Klimt — have ever achieved.

To Warhol, part of defining a niche was defining subject matter. It was the gallerist Muriel Latow who came up with the ideas for both the soup cans and Warhol's dollar-sign paintings. On November 23, 1961 Warhol wrote Latow a check for $50 which, according to the 2009 Warhol biography, Pop, The Genius of Warhol, was payment for coming up with the idea of the soup cans as subject matter. For his first major exhibition, Warhol painted his famous cans of Campbell's Soup, which he claimed to have had for lunch for most of his life. The work sold for $10,000 at an auction on November 17, 1971, at Sotheby's in New York.
