Andy Warhol portrait brings in huge bid

andyAn Andy Warhol portrait that had not previously been displayed was immediately sold to an anonymous bidder for 10.8 million. The painting had just been exhibited at Christie’s in London, when it was quickly bought for twice the estimated value.

The painting is 6x6ft and displays the face of Warhol in half shadow and half light, the colours red and white. The work itself is derived from his very important period around 1967 and marks the time when he gained international fame.

It is a part of a series of 11 works from that time. The New York Museum of Modern Art owns some of these, while the rest are found in San Francisco, Munich, and in the Tate collection. This painting has been kept privately since 1974.
