“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.
