NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s Andy Warhol: Better Days sale (April 28 – May 6), totaled $272,125, with 88% sold by lot and 142% sold by value. Proceeds from the online-only sale, held in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts will support the Foundation’s efforts to provide emergency relief to artists throughout the US.

Other notable results included Montauk Beach, which achieved $10,000, against a low estimate of $2,500; and Archie, which sold for $9,375, against a low estimate of $2,500.

Michael Dayton Hermann, Director of Licensing, Marketing and Sales, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts: "We are grateful for this opportunity to work with Christie’s and to present works by Warhol that reveal him as a keen observer of nature and underscore his ability to appreciate life’s simpler moments. Proceeds from this sale are making a great contribution to the Foundation’s mission to support artists in this time of need, and for that we are extremely appreciative."

Allison Immergut, Junior Specialist, Post-War and Contemporary Art: “Christie’s was honored to partner with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to raise funds for such a vital cause and to give back to artists during this difficult time. We were also grateful for the opportunity to bring forward a lesser known, but ever important side of Warhol’s photography to the art market.”
