Earlier this week, the foundation that oversees Andy Warhol's estate announced that it would sell some 20,000 of the artist's works as part of an effort to shift its focus to grant-making.
The works, which include silk-screen paintings, drawings, prints, collages, and photographs, are expected to bring in at least $100 million as they are sold by Christie's in a series of sales over the next few years.
