In June 2016 we decided to get the lot "examined" by Richard Polsky Art Authentication.
A two pages report concludes that the folios are 100 % authentic and that provenance is 100 % established.

Richard Polsky is the author of two well-known books on Andy Warhol and the art market: I Bought Andy Warhol and I Sold Andy Warhol (too soon). The former was featured on NPR (interview with Renee Montagne) and the latter received a full review in the Wall Street Journal (by Alexandra Peers). Previously, he published The Art Market Guide, a series of books which evaluated the investment potential of blue-chip artists. In 1987, his San Francisco gallery Acme Art hosted just the second exhibition of Andy Warhol paintings in the history of the city, which opened only two days before he passed away. Richard Polsky has also participated on art authentication panels, including one sponsored by the State University of New York at Purchase, which covered such diverse artists as Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock. In addition, Richard Polsky served as the lead expert witness for Peter Brant in the Lindholm vs. Brant trial of the famous Red Elvis painting (which Brant won).

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
