In more pop culture auction news, former tennis great, John McEnroe, is selling a portrait that Andy Warhol made of him and his then wife, Tatum O’Neal at Sotheby’s in London next week.
The acrylic and silk-screen portrait, based on a Polaroid of the couple taken by Mr. Warhol himself, was purchased by Mr. McEnroe at a charity auction for approximately $30,000 in 1986. The work is now expected to fetch up to $687,000.
Mr. McEnroe is now a television commentator at major tennis tournaments and Ms. O’Neal was arrested for scoring crack on the Lower East Side earlier this month.
Don’t forget! You can still go bid on Tony Soprano’s signature short-sleeved button down shirts for $500 at Christie’s tomorrow for a better bargain.
