In partnership with eBay, Sotheby’s has launched a series of live online auctions with real-time bidding and exclusive lots that art lovers and collectors won’t find anywhere else. On May 13, the Contemporary Art Day auction will feature 404 lots of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and other works of art by some of the most famous artists of all time. Included in the big auction is a very rare collection of Polaroids from the King of Selfies, Andy Warhol.
The Warhol collection includes celebrity portraits of Diana Ross, Liza Minelli, Biana Jagger, and Jerry Hall, a set of 12 self-portraits by the artist, and another lot with six photos of Warhol dressed in drag with various wigs and makeup. Kim Kardashian may be the current Queen of artistic selfies, but no one will ever take Warhol’s crown.
The celebrity portraits are estimated to sell for between $40,000 and $60,000, the drag selfies are expected to bring in $70,000 to $90,000, and the dozen selfies are expected to go for as much as $350,000.
Head over to the auction to read more about the Polaroids and to see the other 400 works of art up for grabs.
