NEW YORK – Elizabeth Taylor and Andy Warhol, major luminaries of the 20th century, shine together in a signed offset lithograph of the actress by the artist, making it the star attraction in a Jasper52 Fine Paintings and Prints Auction on Saturday, Oct. 14. Absentee and Internet bidding is available through LiveAuctioneers.
Liz Taylor, the litho (above), is signed and dated “Andy Warhol 67” in ballpoint pen at the lower right. The work was published by Leo Castelli Gallery, New York (Feldman & Schellmann, II.7) in an edition of about 300. The colors are rich and even, and the print is loose in the frame. Purchased from the Marisa del Re Gallery in New York City, the artwork is estimated at $35,000-$45,000.

An abstract painting (below) by Camille Hilaire (French 1916-2004) makes a bold statement on a 17 ½-by-25-inch canvas. It carries a $2,000-$2,500 estimate.
