OAKLAND, CALIF. – A complete “Mick Jagger” portfolio of ten screenprints by Andy Warhol (American, 1928-1987) sold for $817,000 on a $450,000 high estimate, an auction record for the portfolio, at Clars Auction Gallery’s June 14 sale. The prints were each signed by Warhol and editioned 80/250. They were done on Arches Aquarelle paper.
The portfolio came from a private collection in San Francisco and was accompanied by an original 1976 purchase receipt from Castelli Graphics/Multiples Inc, New York. The complete portfolio has only come up for auction three times in the last 15 years.
“Clars is proud to have achieved a record breaking price on a rare suite of ten Warhol screen prints of Mick Jagger,” said Cristina Campion, associate director of Twentieth Century Design at Clars. “We were excited to have numerous international bidders vying for the lot. I think it’s really indicative that the art market is still going strong, and that Andy Warhol’s works, particularly of noted celebrities, are in high demand.”
