Rediscovered Andy Warhol Up For Auction

One of the most significant art auctions is coming up at Christie`s, London.

The Post-War and Contemporary Art pieces for auction are serious works of art – with serious price tags!

The phrase you get what you pay for holds so much truth with these lots, the auction is expected to realise a combined total of £46,246,000 to £66,447,000 – but the importance of these works cannot be questioned.

Taking place on 16th and 17th February 2011, with all the full auction being on public display in London from 12 to 16 February.

The stand out lot has to be a rediscovered and highly important Andy Warhol self portrait. The picture has been in a private collection since 1974 and is expected to go for £3 million to £5 million.

Just short of 2 metres square, it`s big in scale as well as style.

Another highlight is Winter Bears from Jeff Koons` highly acclaimed Banality series which launched him as an international art star in the late 1980s.

This is the first time it has been offered at auction having been in the present collection since 1994. It is expected to realise £2.5 million to £3.5 million.
