Zach Miner presents Andy Warhol's 'Gun', 1981-1982, from one of the most ominous and captivating series of his entire career. The canvas depicts the exact style of pistol used almost two decades before in an assassination attempt by Valerie Solanas that nearly took Warhol's life. Silkscreened twice, every detail is meticulously highlighted and dramatized in raw and monochromatic screens.

This work sold for $7,026,500 at the Phillips de Pury & Company Contemporary Art Evening Sale in New York, 10 May 2012.
