Kim K. wore a second Marilyn Monroe dress after the Met Gala 2022
We’re not alone after the Met Gala. Marilyn Monroe The mind.
Andy Warhol‘s 1964 portrait of the late actress just made history.
On May 9, Warhol’s “Shot Sage Blue Marilyn” portrait sold for $195 million, becoming the most expensive 20th-century work of art ever sold at an auction and the second-highest price for artwork sold at an auction ever, according to a press release from Christie’s, an art and luxury business.
The artwork featured a close-up image of Monroe in vibrant color—with yellow hair, blue eyeshadow and red lips—on a blue background.
According to the press release, the Thomas and Doris Ammann Foundation will donate a part of the proceeds to charities that provide urgent medical and education services for children.
Additionally, the buyer—who was not named—has been invited to partner with the foundation and nominate the charities to which 20 percent of the proceeds will be awarded.
