Double Dollars

Warhol's 'Double Elvis' (Ferus Type), a silver silkscreen image of Elvis Presley depicted as a cowboy, fetched $37,042,500. It had been expected to sell for $30 million to $50 million. The auction house said it was the first 'Double Elvis' to appear on the market since 1995. Warhol produced a series of 22 images of Elvis. Nine are in museum collections.
