#BetterDays The Warhol Foundation is excited to collaborate with Christie’s on an online-only sale featuring original photographic works that highlight Warhol’s ability to capture the beauty of ordinary life. Proceeds from the sale will support the Foundation’s ongoing effort to provide emergency relief to artists throughout the US at this time of crisis. The sale will be open for bidding from April 28 – May 6 and is now open for browsing (link in bio). . The 60 unique photographic works were each chosen for their ability to transport the viewer to better days, conveying the splendor of being outdoors and the simple pleasures associated with human interaction. “You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you,” said Andy Warhol. Michael Dayton Hermann, Director of Licensing, Marketing and Sales at the Warhol Foundation selected the works in coordination with Christie’s and said, “We are delighted to work with Christie’s to enhance the Foundation’s ability to continue to invest in society when it needs it most. This unique sale focuses on works which celebrate Warhol’s uncanny ability to draw attention to the inspiring artistry of ordinary life.” . First image: Andy Warhol.
