Auction house to offer Andy Warhol works onlineJanuary 30, 2013 @ 1:28 pm
NEW YORK (AP) - An online auction of Andy Warhol's works will give a broader audience the chance to own a piece of his pop art.
It is Christie's International's first online-only Warhol sale. About 125 paintings, drawings, photographs and prints will be offered from Feb. 26 through March 5. Pre-sale estimates range from $600 to $70,000.
The auction is being held in partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
The works can be previewed online before the sale.
Bidders can browse, bid and receive instant updates by email or phone if another bid exceeds theirs.
The first live auction raised $17 million for the Warhol Foundation's endowment.
Warhol is famous for his silk screened images of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and detailed renderings of Campbell's Soup cans.
