“Uncle Sam” is 1 of 10 screenprints from the “Myths Suite” portfolio. In the “Myths” suite Andy Warhol  features 10 very well known fictional figures.  Some would call Andy Warhol the founding father of pop art. Some would call him genius. What ever you call him, his works are some of the most sought after and the auction records speak for themselves. “Today, he is regarded as one of the most prominent artists of the twentieth century, contributing not only thousands of works of art that are housed in museums and collections worldwide but also an iconic style that would impact the art market and artists alike for decades. His works have been exhibited in over two thousand exhibitions, including retrospectives at The Gagosian Gallery, New York, NY (2008); Musée National d´Art Moderne, Paris, France (1990); and The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL (1989).”
