Andy Warhol works are heading to auction. Many feature the celebrities of New York City’s once iconic Studio 54 nightclub.
It’s the second online-only sale by Christie’s International in partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The foundation is selling its collection to raise money for its endowment.
The sale runs from April 26 through May 3.
It features more than 215 paintings, drawings, photographs and prints. Estimates range from $1,500 to $70,000.
The highlights include a 1981 gelatin silver print of Warhol posing with Michael Jackson. It has a $15,000 to $20,000 estimate.
