WARHOL Brings the Excitement for the Legendary Pop Artist to Online Auctions

artnet Auctions offers rare works by Andy Warhol on its online bidding platform


New York, January 17, 2019-On the heels of the current major retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, artnet Auctions is pleased to offer works by the famed Pop artist in our latest online sale, WARHOL. Now live for bidding, this auction comes at a time of renewed interest in Andy Warhol's oeuvre and offers rare works spanning his career.

Works date from the 1950s, when Warhol was a designer illustrating shoes, and continue through the year of his death, ending with one of his few abstract subjects-camouflage.

Two notable pieces come from the former art director of Interview magazine: the beautiful Poinsettias painting (est. $80,000-120,000) and a rare-to-market print Hamburger (est. $50,000-70,000), both of which were gifted directly from Andy to the current owner. Among the sale's highlights are also unique prints and trial proofs, including a rare Orangutan (est. $60,000-80,000) from the wildly popular Endangered Species series.

artnet Auctions has long been a destination for collectors of Warhol. In 2011, the platform famously broke a record for online art sales with Warhol's Flowers (1978) painting, which sold for an astounding $1.32 million. Since then, artnet has regularly achieved impressive results for the artist's work, including the screenprint Chicken Noodle (from Campbell's Soup I) (1968) which sold for $34,200 in 2014, and the offset lithograph Liz (1964) which sold for $60,000 in 2017.

"The fascination with Warhol has been steady," says Conner Williams, head of Prints & Multiples at artnet Auctions. "Recent prices achieved at auction have proven that high-quality works-such as those included in our sale-are still in high demand. We've received exceptional works from friends and assistants of the artist, some of whom were gifted rare pieces. Warhol lovers of all stripes are sure to find a Warhol they love!"

WARHOL will be live for bidding through January 29, 2019 exclusively on artnet Auctions. It follows another recent successful single-artist sale, Beyond Recognition: Gerhard Richter, which achieved an 82% sell-through rate with several works exceeding their estimates.

Several Select works from WARHOL will also be on display in artnet's Tribeca headquarters for the duration of the sale. Viewings are available by appointment.
