In the Saleroom: Andy Warhol’s Silver Liz

Description

Andy Warhol’s Silver Liz was the top lot sold at Christie’s 11 May evening sale of Post-War and Contemporary Art, realizing $18,338,500 and exceeding its pre-sale estimate. This magnificent, double-paneled silkscreen from 1963 is one of Andy Warhol's most alluring works, conceived out of his obsession for one of Hollywood's most glamorous stars. Painted at the very birth of the Pop Art movement, the work combines his love of celebrity and pop culture with an early example of his silkscreen work in one glittering work. (RT: 5:18)
