Avanti Cars, a 1962 acrylic, silkscreen and pencil on canvas (54 1/4 x 28 inches) was one of the first screen-print paintings by Andy Warhol. It is signed, dated "62" and dedicated to Jay Shriver and was stamped by the Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board, Inc., and numbered A129.9511 on the overlap. Executed in 1962, a seminal year in the development of Pop Art, this image represents a radical departure from previous picture making and resonates with Warhol's fascination with American consumerism and its packaging, and his criteria of "high" and "low" culture. The Avanti, introduced in 1962, may have been a glamorous and radically designed sports coupe yet the car was also undeniably a mass produced American commodity. The Andy Warhol Museum
