  5. Muhammad Ali

    Andy Warhol met Muhammad Ali in 1977 while working on a photographic series based on famous athletes. The project was initiated by the sports enthusiast and art collector Richard Weisman, and this beautiful color screenprint portfolio soon followed. In the prints, the legendary boxer is depicted not only as strong, but also with a focused gaze evoking an almost regal sense of power.

  9. Baselitz Portrait for Charity

    This self-portrait by Georg Baselitz, one of Germany’s most famous contemporary artists, was sold on artnet Auctions for US$35,000, over three times its estimate. All of the proceeds will benefit Deutsche Kinderkrebsstiftung, the children’s cancer charity. 

    Baselitz created the artwork during the course of a television interview for Die Kunst auf dem Kopf: Baselitz zum 75, a program on the German channel ZDF about the artist’s work and life. The work is drawn upside-down, in keeping with Baselitz’s practice of inverting images in order to privilege the picture plane over physical reality.

    We are thrilled with the outcome and would like to thank Georg Baselitz, ZDF, and all of you who placed your bids for charity!

  12. Modigliani’s Doomed Lover

    A Modigliani painting of his lover sold Tuesday night for 26.9 million pounds (US $42.1 million), the most highly valued of 74 lots at Christie’s International in London.

    The painting is of Amadeo Modigliani's common-law wife. When the Italian painter died destitute, at the age of 35, in 1920, a grief-stricken Hebuterne committed suicide the following day, killing their unborn child.

    The work was bought by a Christie’s Russian-speaking client services representative, bidding on the telephone on behalf of a client, against opposition from at least three others, according to Bloomberg.

  15. Tunick’s Nudes

    Artist Spencer Tunick has been documenting the live nude figure in public, with both photography and video, since 1992.

    The individuals en masse, without their clothing, grouped together metamorphose into a new shape. The bodies extend into and upon the landscape like a substance. These grouped masses, which do not underscore sexuality, become abstractions that challenge or reconfigure one’s views of nudity and privacy. The work also refers to the complex issue of presenting art in permanent or temporary public spaces.

    Spencer Tunick’s New Paltz 2 (2001) is part of our Fifty Shades: A Photography Sale on artnet Auctions
