Own Andy Warhol’s Photography
A new charity auction aims to provide ‘better days’ for struggling artists – and it’s an arguably affordable way to snare a sought-after piece by the acclaimed American artist.
A current auction featuring some of Andy Warhol’s most intimate and personal photography is up for auction – at comparatively accessible prices.
Better yet, the new Christie’s online sale sees proceeds support the Andy Warhol Foundation’s emergency relief fund for artists struggling during the current pandemic.
The Better Days auction features a collection 60 single-print photographs taken by Warhol – documenting his travels across America, including shots of Montauk beaches, Colorado mountains and insights into his New York life.
Standouts include a self-portrait of the artist (expected to fetch $75,000-plus) and a polaroid of Warhol and Belgian curator Henry Geldzahler that’s tipped to go for $35,000.
Bidding on the auction is now live, concluding May 6.
