Art market

Warhol’s Factory for sale

You can own a piece of history for only $7 million

The Factory, the studio where Andy Warhol created some of his most famous works has been put on the market for over $7 million (£5 million). Sited at 158 Madison Avenue, it was the third of Warhol’s gathering-places, where he famously came close to his ambition of producing art as though by “machine”. He bought it for $900,000 in 1980 and lived there until his death in 1987.
