ANDY WARHOL (1928-1987)

 

Christie’s is putting a series of photos taken at

Studio 54 by pop art legend Andy Warhol

under the hammer in a unique online auction.

26th April – 3rd May

 

 

Starting April 26th until May 3rd, the sale will include

215 photos, all taken by the artist at legendary Manhattan

club, Studio 54, and all coincidently hitting the auction

block almost 36 years to the day since the opening of the

famed nightspot in 1977. Recognized as the home of the

New York’s infamous underground scene between 1977

and 1986, Studio 54 was created by entrepreneurs Steve

Rubell and Ian Schrager inside an old theater and

attracted many a famous and fashionable regular. Appearing

in many of the snapshots, portraits and self-portraits

are among others, Michael JacksonMick Jagger

Elizabeth Taylor and designers Jean Paul Gaultier 

and Diane Von Furstenberg .

 

All proceeds from this unique action on line @Christie’s will

benefit the Andy Warhol Foundation which supports

contemporary artists.
