While a big price tag may not be necessary for a great work of art, the history of art is inextricably linked to money. Andy Warhol
, Jean-Michel Basquiat
, Keith Haring
, and recently Alec Monopoly
, have created notable works of art that incorporate imagery of money, as well as its symbols and language. We offer a selection of artworks on Artsy and complementary artist quotes that address money—as a burden, a gift, and a source of inspiration.
