Andy Worhol is a famous artist and was one of the leading artists that created pop art.  If you don’t know who Andy is, you then you will know his famous painting of the Campbell’s Soup Can.  The highest price ever paid for a Worhol work of art is $100 million for is canvas called Eight Elvises.

Andy Fields, a businessman from England, was recently in Las Vegas and went to a garage sale and bought five sketches for $5.  The man bought the sketches from a man who said that his aunt used to look after Andy Worhol when Andy was a kid.  Andy’s signature was found on the back of the sketches when the owner of the sketches took a closer look.

The man did some research of the sketches and found out that they were done in 1939 or 1940 when Andy was bedridden with cholera.  A person with knowledge of how much works of art go for told the owner of the sketches that they could fetch over $2 million.
