Christie's latest online-only auction includes more than 120 photographs, prints and drawings by Andy Warhol, celebrating the artist's lifelong involvement with performers and entertainers. Subjects of the work range from global superstars like Cher and Mick Jagger (both below) to fashion icons like Bill Cunningham and Brooke Shields.
Andy Warhol @ Christie's: The Entertainers runs through October 30th, with opening bids starting at $1,000. Last month, Christie's ran another sale of works by Warhol (that one explicitly dealing with fashion and style) concurrently to New York Fashion Week. (We'll be talking to Christie's soon about the strategy behind the company's recent move into online-only sales, so stay tuned.)
All proceeds benefit the Warhol Foundation's grant-making programs in support of artists and non-profits.
