Celebrity screenprints as well as those from the Endangered Species series can wear the Warhol chop, but

if your print is not signed and editioned, it represents an illegitimate impression, one that dealers who worked with the artist prior to his death, insist would have fallen outside of Andy’s view of a limited edition print.

How these prints were spirited away from the Warhol Factory is anyone’s guess, but their financial standing is miniscule when compared to the value of the authorized versions of the same print.

Buying art can be extremely tricky, which is why it is wise to deal with an experienced dealer, one who will stand behind what they are selling.
