Shot Sage Blue Marilyn in auction


British auction house, Christie’s, announced that it would sell a 1964 Andy Warhol silkscreen of Marilyn Monroe in May for an estimated $200 million, which would make it the most expensive 20thcentur­y artwork ever to sell at auction. The painting comes to Christie’s from the Thomas and Doris Ammann Foundation, Zurich, which supports health care and educationa­l programs for children. The announceme­nt about the work, Shot Sage Blue Marilyn, represents a significan­t burst of excitement for a high-end art market that has come through the coronaviru­s pandemic largely unscathed.
