Click to Enlarge! Every artist wishes to sell his work, if only to make enough money to make another painting. Selling one's work to a collector and becoming financially independent is a dream. Of course, artists do not only wish for the money, but for the interaction which occurs when their work is exhibited. However, it is the art market which determines which works should be on view.

Click to Enlarge! Andy Warhol blurred the lines between personal artistic expression and celebrity culture. He specifically created many copies of the same piece so as to question the value of the artist's personal touch as opposed to the value of the collective. In keeping with this, many of his pieces were not created by him personally, but by his assistants. It isn't a far jump for collectors and their lawyers to question the authenticity of the work.

The surprise occurs when the judge rules.
