Market fascination with the works of Andy Warhol seemed to have … fizzed out in recent times – at least a little – but a change is in the air, and it seems Christie’s isn’t going to miss out.
$60 million (44.17 million Euros) is what the auction house is betting on raking-in for the sale of a Coca-Cola bottle from 1962, by Warhol.
Not a silkscreen, rather a one-of-a-kind piece, the black and white work measures 69.3″ x 54″ (176,2 cm x 137,2cm).
