The Andy Warhol Economy: Here's How Much Of His Art Sold In 2014

Andy Warhol is the most in-demand artist right now.

And he passed away in 1987.

Here's the incredible art statistic about Warhol and auctions from Bloomberg:
Andy Warhol was the top-selling artist at auction in the past year as increased competition for the most-expensive segment of the market drove global art sales higher. 
Collectors bought 1,295 works by the deceased artist totaling $653.2 million, ahead of sales for Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon, according to preliminary figures by New York-based researcher Artnet. Auctions worldwide rose 10 percent to $16 billion.
