Woodshed Art Auctions will be putting up a gouache painting on paper for auction starting February 1. The artwork features Apple’s classic Macintosh logo designed by Andy Warhol (1928-1987). Measuring 8 by 8 inches and surrounded by a 16.5 by 16.5 inches frame, with Warhol’s signature on the front and back, the painting is said to be in “very good condition” with archival corners and no adhesives touching.

Some of the iconic pieces in the original Ads Series by the late artist were inspired by fashion, movies, technology, of which Warhol had turned those every day production works into colourful imagery. Pictured above, the imagery includes Paramount, Blackglama (Judy Garland), Rebel without a Cause (James Dean), Chanel, The New Spirit (Donald Duck), Life Savers, Van Heusen (Ronald Reagan), Mobil, and Volkswagen.

This Warhol’s Ad painting is estimated to fetch a price between $20,000 to $30,000 with the starting bid at $5,000.
