Last night, Christie's held a live and online auction to benefit the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in New York. The evening featured 354 works by Warhol and raised over $17 million. Interesting to me were the three dog drawings.
You may remember the Cocker Spaniel. I believe it is Ginger, the dog of Warhol's friend and Interview partner Peter Brant who encouraged Warhol to focus on pet portraits after he saw it. I wrote about Ginger here and included her in my "Dogs in Art" short film.
Also last night, an Andy Warhol butterfly silkscreen sold for $1,258,500.
