Christie’s Plans to Auction a Warhol for $200 Million—and Break Records

The highly coveted 1964 Marilyn Monroe painting would become the most expensive 20th century work ever to sell at auction.

In May, Christie’s will lead its marquee New York sales week with an auction of an Andy Warhol Marilyn silkscreen carrying an estimate in the region of $200 million.

If the 1964 work, Shot Sage Blue Marilyn sells for that amount, it will be the most expensive 20th century painting to ever sell at auction, according to Christie’s.
