Lot description
Warhol gave this "Money Bag" to his printer Rupert Jason Smith in the 1980s and dedicated it to him. During this period, Warhol and Rupert did other silkscreens on laundry bags and this particular bag was probably left over from that printing session. After Warhol died in 1987, Smith gave the bag to the present owner. This is the only known drawing on a laundry bag. The silkscreened laundry bags have fetched as much as $193,000 at auction in the past few years.
