Leading Dane Fine Art’s New Year Sale of Modern & Contemporary Art is Andy Warhol’s Tidal Basin, a unique 3D screenprint and collage on paper (lot #37; estimate: USD 91,000 – $126,000). It is a one-of-a-kind artwork showing a couple on a romantic getaway, produced by Warhol in 1983. The iconic Campbell’s Soup can painter rose to prominence with his poster-like paintings and screenprints. His painting style and subjects are as unique and extravagant as the artist. Warhol chose to paint subjects that the American public was obsessed with, like Marilyn Monroe, featured in another available Warhol work.
