At least seven of Warhol’s works were displayed throughout Ina Ginsburg’s Washington home, a veritable museum of the artist’s finest inspirations. But it is not just the art that took one’s breath away—it was Ginsburg herself. Warhol, her good friend, singled her out years ago, and even chose her as the Washington editor of his Interview magazine.

Ina Ginsburg’s life and legacy were forever changed by her close relationship with the Pop artist and provocateur Andy Warhol.

If you thought you knew everything there was to know about Andy Warhol, the undisputed high priest of Pop art, the exhibition “Warhol Underground” at the Centre Pompidou-Metz  might just change your mind.

“I never wanted to be a painter; I wanted to be a tap dancer” and “I don't paint any more, I gave it up about a year ago and just do movies now” are just two of the many statements made by Warhol in the 1960s that signified his ambitions beyond the pictorial field.

Andy Warhol's former Hampton's estate was recently listed by its current owner for an astounding $85 million. Warhol and his business partner/friend Paul Morrissey purchased the estate back in 1972 for a modest amount of $225,000.

A rare, never-before-displayed Andy Warhol painting depicting socialite and Manhattan-based real estate attorney Olga Berde Mahl will make its public debut at Masterpiece London from June 25–July 1. Aptly titled "The Socialite," it was created between 1986–87, and comes to the fair courtesy of Indianapolis gallery Long-Sharp Gallery.

While Warhol's portraits of celebrities, models, and society women are among his most well-known, the Mahl portrait has never been displayed as it was sold directly to the subject.

The almighty dollar is the lingua franca of the international art market. But the dollar was also a favorite subject of Andy Warhol and other notable contemporary artists. An upcoming sale from a private collection will seek to wed art and commerce on the glittery altar of the greenback.

A collection of 21 pieces of contemporary art, all depicting the U.S. dollar in some way, is expected to fetch as much as $93 million when it heads to a Sotheby's auction in London on July 1.

The Andy Warhol Museum announces the public presentation of 10 rarely seen Andy Warhol "Screen Tests" on Times Square's electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight each night in May 2015. The screenings are part of the ongoing project "Midnight Moment," a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. Among the "Screen Tests" shown are those of Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg, Lou Reed, Harry Smith, and Edie Sedgwick.

Between 1964 and 1966, Warhol created almost 500 of these three-minute film portraits of famous and anonymous visitors to his studio, filming his subjects using a stationary Bolex camera loaded with 100-foot rolls of black and white 16mm film.

Judged by visitor and exhibitor figures—56,000 visitors and 200 galleries from 23 countries this year—Art Cologne, whose 2015 edition closed on April 19, is not quite in the top ten fairs internationally. But as a regional event with a strong focus on Germany’s vibrant art scene and the German, Benelux and eastern European market, it has established itself as an essential stop-off on the art fair circuit for many collectors and dealers. “We need to be here,” said Alex Reding of the Luxembourg gallery Nosbaum Reding.
