Warhol’s Statue of Liberty
“If you put on 3-D glasses, it becomes a grainy, black and white 3-D photograph,” Brett Gorvy, the chairman and international head of Postwar and Contemporary Art at Christie’s, told Bloomberg.
He’s referring to Andy Warhol's 1962 Statue of Liberty, which could sell for more than US$35 million when it’s auctioned at Christie’s on November 14, 2012!
In the work, the Statue of Liberty is shown 24 times, in four rows of six images. Silkscreened in red over green ink on a white background, the piece has a three-dimensional effect, which, in the 1960s, was known from horror movies.
