Andy Warhol online auction to break new ground at Christie's

Christie's first online-only auction in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is to feature 125 works by the celebrated American pop artist.

Commencing on February 26 and closing on March 5, the weeklong sale is set to star drawings, paintings, photographs and prints by Warhol, with estimates ranging from $60 to $70,000.

It is the latest in a series of auctions designed to benefit the foundation, which was established after Warhol's death in 1987.

Work Boots (Negative) carries a $50,000-70,000 estimate

Two silkscreens on canvas, both entitled Work Boots, are among the works predicted to lead the sale, with individual $50,000-70,000 estimates. Work Boots (Negative), depicting two shoes against a black background and Work Boots (Positive) featuring the same image against a white background, both measure 16 x 20 inches and are believed to be circa 1985-1986.

Key Service (Negative) and Key Service (Positive) are also set to star and have also been given individual $50,000-70,000 valuations.

Will Warhol's Cambell's Chicken with Rice Soup beat Work Boots to top lot?


Warhol's Cambell's Chicken with Rice Soup, a now iconic Cambell's soup can that was filled with concrete by the artist in 1964, is also contesting for top lot, carrying an identical estimate.

Andy Warhol is among the most collected artists in the world. He was the top selling artist of 2012, while in 2008, his 1963 work, Eight Elvises, sold via private treaty for $100m.
