Warhol's Charles and Diana Up For Sale
The Opera Gallery in London is hoping to cash in on royal wedding fever, putting two portraits by artist Andy Warhol up for sale that were created to celebrate the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. The AFP reports that the gallery acquired the original synthetic polymer and silkscreen ink on canvas pieces from a private collection. These pieces were initially sold to a private collector in 1982 and haven't been for sale since. The large portraits show Diana in a formal gown against a pink background while Charles is in a uniform against a blue background. The gallery will be selling them as a set for 2 million pounds ($3.15 million).
