“One of the major highlights of the sale is Andy Warhol’s stunning portrait of Grace Kelly (1984), which is estimated at US$75,000 to 85,000. Published to raise funds for the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, Kelly’s hometown, this work brings the classic actress’s beauty into modern times. Warhol brings to life Kelly’s sultry, confrontational gaze with his trademark dynamic neon accents.” (via artdaily.com)
