Andy's Boyz

New York-pride

Now through Thursday, June 27th — just in time for New York Gay Pride - comes this wonderfully risqué collection of later works from The Warhol Foundation. Christie's "For Members Only: Eyes on the Guise" auction features over 200 photographs, prints and drawings focused exclusively on the hairier sex. It's an R-rated journey through Andy's personal life, and the prices are just as shocking, in a good way. (Seeing as he's the most famous American artist, ever, we can think of worse places to blow a thousand dollars.) But the best part is you don't have to put on a jacket and hike up to Rockefeller Center to bid. The auction is online only. Careful viewing at work, though. These aren't your Grandma's Warhols.

Happy Pride!

Andy Warhol, Still Life with Vaseline Unique polaroid print (1977) Estimate $1,000-$2,000
