Andy Warhol’s $32.5 Million Self-Portrait Shows How Gays Are Pricey Things to Collect

Pablo Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” might’ve set a world art auction record last week for selling at $106.5 million, but gay-tist Andy Warhol self-portrait, created in 1986, the year before he died, beat high estimates of $15 million and went for a whopping $32.5 million at Sotheby’s. It’s the highest price ever paid at auction for a Warhol.

      Andy Warhol actually did WAY more work on his art than you might believe. Also, most established artists do have much help prepping canvases, etc.

      Picasso & Warhol = 20th Century Art. Period (overstatement, but still).
