Andy Warhol's Red Lenin to make $75,500?

Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky is looking to sell his limited edition print of Andy Warhol's Red Lenin as part of Christie's March 20 auction of Old Master, Modern & Contemporary Prints in London.

Warhol was the top-selling artist of 2012, and the market for his work remains hot in early 2013


The billionaire is trying to recoup some of the huge losses he faces following a legal defeat at the hands of his former business partner Roman Abramovich. The 1987 screen print will contribute just a small amount towards the $5.6bn Berezovsky lost, valued at £30,000-50,000 ($45,338-75,564).

His rival Abramovich is also an art collector, although perhaps on a different scale. In 2008, he paid a massive $86.3m for Francis Bacon's Triptych 1976, setting the world auction record for the artist's work.

It was not just Warhol's art that was iconic, but also his inimitable style. We are currently offering the famous black polo neck jumper that he was so frequently pictured wearing - a fantastic memento to complement any collection of his work.
