Warhol self-portrait to be sold in NYC

2011-04-21 07:25
 
New York - A 1986 self-portrait by Andy Warhol that was among the last of his paintings exhibited while he was alive, is going on sale in New York City.

Christie's auction house said on Wednesday it will sell the stark red-on-black Self-Portrait on May 11. It's estimated to bring up to $40m. 

At nearly 1 square metre in size, the painting is considered a landmark work by the American Pop artist created toward the end of his life.

It was exhibited for the first time in London in 1986, just six months before his death.

Earlier this year, a 1.8 metre self-portrait by Warhol sold for more than $17m at Christie's London auction.

The auction record for a Warhol is $71.7m, for Green Car Crash.
