One-hundred-and-twenty-five pieces of artwork by the late Andy Warhol will be in a online-only auction by Christie’s, reports Reuters.
The cyber auction, which began on Tuesday and runs through March 5, includes paintings, drawings, and photographs by Warhol. Amy Cappellazzo, the chairman of post-war and contemporary at Christie’s, is handling the event.
Cappellazzo told Reuters she thinks that online space works for art under a certain price, such as pieces selling for less than $100,000. She also believes Warhol would have approved of the online format.
"Andy would have loved the Internet. He would have loved the idea that his works could be distributed far and wide and that anyone who wanted one, could get one because bringing the works to an online format will allow anyone with a credit card to buy it. I think, for sure, he would have liked that."
