 'Andy Warhol's Factory' at Christie's

The latest edition in Christie's series of online auctions dedicated to the work of Andy Warhol sees a selection of 110 works from his iconic Factory era.  'Andy Warhol's Factory' will be open for online bidding from February 16 and will feature photographs, drawings and prints with highlights including self-portrait photographs as well as images of some of the memorable characters of the period, such as Sean Lennon and Steve Jobs (dating from 1985). 

They may have looked like nondescript buildings on East 47th Street and Union Square, but they were anything but. Andy Warhol’s studios, called ‘The Factory,’ was where the artist worked, entertained and did everything in between. It was part salon, part theatre and anyone who was anyone in New York City wanted to be invited. It was here where iconic album covers for The Velvet Underground and The Rolling Stones were created. It was here where Warhol ‘superstars’ such as Holly Woodlawn, Edie Sedgwick, Ondine and David Bowie hung around and sat for their screen tests. And it was here where Andy Warhol created his iconic Pop artworks that would forever change the art world.
