Last Thursday, Sandra Bullock’s agents purchased a print of Andy Warhol’s Peaches for her one-year-old son Louis Bardo at the amFAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles.
US Weekly reports that the print went for $14,000, some $4,000 over the second most recent price paid for such a work according to Artnet. It’s for a good cause, of course, and you can’t put a price on the way a child’s face lights up after he’s been given a Warhol.
In the words of longtime US Weekly subscriber Marion Maneker, who pointed us to this story, “What Do You Give the Kid with Everything? A Warhol Print, Of Course.”
