Proving yet again that Andy Warhol is the most famous American artist, living or dead, his silkscreen “200 One Dollar Bills” sold yesterday at Sotheby’s for a whopping $43.8 million. Theoretically, each of those 200 dollar bills is now worth a cool $21.9K. What the collector Pauline Karpidas paid for the artwork — more than four times its estimated selling price — is a symbolic effort to own a piece of Warhol fame pie, not just some arguably second-rate canvas. Plus when you cross your eyes, a 3-D image of Michael Jackson pops out. We kid.
