Andy Warhol print of Queen Elizabeth II sells for record-breaking $855,000

10:27, November 30

A royal blue print of Queen Elizabeth II set a new auction record for an Andy Warhol edition print last week after being sold in Toronto, Canada for $1,141,250 Canadian ($855,600 USD), ARTnews reported.

The diamond-dusted Royal Edition is one of four images of the late monarch from Warhol’s 1985 “Reigning Queen” series.  The piece was sold at the Heffel auction house on November 24, and its closing amount, which includes fees and buyer’s premiums, far exceeded the estimate of $375,000–$450,000. This work was based on a photograph of the Queen taken by Peter Grugeon in 1977, when Elizabeth II celebrated the silver anniversary of her accession to the throne.
