Andy Warhol works auctioned online

The Associated Press

NEW YORK  — A New York City auction house will offer an online auction of Andy Warhol's works, giving a broader audience the chance to own a piece of his art.

It's Christie's first online-only Warhol sale. About 125 paintings, drawings, photographs and prints will be offered from Feb. 26 through March 5. Pre-sale estimates range from $600 to $70,000.

The auction is being held in partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

The works can be previewed online prior to the sale.

Bidders can browse, bid and receive instant updates by email or phone if another bid exceeds theirs.

Christie's and the foundation entered the partnership last fall.

The first live auction raised $17 million for the Warhol Foundation's endowment.
