3. Difference Sunday B. Morning serigraphs and Carnegie lithographs

Sunday B. Morning prints are still printed in unlimited editions. CMOA lithographs are limited numbered editions and the print process was closed years ago. Both editions were NEVER hand signed by Andy Warhol.

4. CMOA Edition

The Carnegie Museum of Art limited editions were edited in 1986 one year before Andy Warhol's death. They got in sale in the 1990's and beginning 2000's. Some had no CMOA stamp on verso but the most bear black or blue stamps. Because of the popularity of Andy Warhol in the last 30 years he got more and more victim of counterfeits. There are now limited "editions" of 100 or 150 offered by various editors with descriptions like: 

Stamp: Leo Castelli Gallery New York, Embossing: Georges Israel editeur, Watermark: “Arches France", Paper: Handmade paper ARCHES, Authentication: embossed by editor Georges Israel Editeur / stamped on reverse by the Leo Castelli Gallery New York

OR SFMONA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) and many more.

These small editions are simple posters and they were printed in late 2010's or 2020's without consent of Andy Warhol, Andy Warhol Foundation or Estate of Andy Warhol. They bear different stamps the more they have the more they should appear authentic.

6. COA

The COA for Warhol prints came from the Board of the Warhol Foundation. The examination costs were all in all about $ 2000. It was issued for hand signed lithographs or hand paintings which have value of min. $ 40000. The Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board, Inc. was a private corporation that certified the authenticity of works by the artist, Andy Warhol, from 1995 to early 2012. On the day of October 19, 2011, in a statement by the Board of Directors of the Andy Warhol Foundation, it was announced that the Authentication Board was to be completely dissolved in early 2012 in order to maximize its charitable contributions to the arts.

7. Andy Warhol's Signature and Fakes

Andy Warhol's signature went through changes during the course of his career. His 1950's prints were signed by his mother,  Julia Warhola.

 His 1960's prints were often signed on the back beginning his first name with a round "A" , some used a stamped signature, some just his initials. So not all of the first 250 lithographs editions were hand signed.

In principle Andy Warhol was a lazy man. But it is true, he gave occasionally to his friends or gallery visitors autographs or made quick drafts. But these occasions were rare. You will find a lot of "hand signed" prints of Andy Warhol in different auctions but also in renowned galleries. To 99 % these offered mostly offset prints are just pages torn from different illustrations (books, journals) and signed with a black or gold felt pen by somebody but definitely not by Andy Warhol.

About 85 % of all Andy Warhol signatures are counterfeits and the offers on ebay, onlineauctioneers or other obscure sources go up to 99 % > good luck buying a hand signed Warhol for under $ 25000. 

Let us ask you a question: Who would sell a hand signed print with a value of min. $ 10000 for just $ 100?

If Andy Warhol would have signed all these prints he would have had to live for another two centuries. The value of these fakes is simply zero.
