Iconic Marilyn Monroe image by Andy Warhol coming to auction

NEW YORK (AP) – An iconic image of Marilyn Monroe created by Andy Warhol is coming to auction, with Christie’s auction house estimating the price at around USD200 million.

The silkscreen image known as Shot Sage Blue Marilyn, a close-up of Monroe with her hair in yellow, her eyeshadow blue and her lips red, is slated to be part of a week of sales in May, Christie’s said on Monday.

If it met the sale estimate, the 1964 painting would be the most expensive 20th-Century artwork to be auctioned, Christie’s said.
