sheet 158.5 x 122cm

LONDON.-The iconic British supermodel, Kate Moss portrayed by three popular artists, Tracey Emin, Banksy and Albert Watson will be sold at Bonhams Vision 21 in Knightsbridge on April 16.

Works by Albert Watson include a gelatin silver print of Kate Moss in Marrakech produced in 1993 - estimate £5,000 - 7,000 and a C-Type print on aluminium, Marrakech, 1993 - estimate £3000 - 5,000. Watson is one of the most successful and sought-after fashion and commercial photographers who has produced photographs for magazines such as Vogue, The Face, Rolling Stone and Newsweek. He won various prizes, including a Grammy Award in 1975 for the best design for an LP cover. His crowning achievements include his unprecedented 250 cover images for Vogue - perhaps the ultimate barometer of success for a fashion photographer.

A screenprint of Kate Moss by the renowned urban artist, Banksy produced in 2005 is estimated at £30,000 - 50,000, while Tracy Emin, one of the leading YBA (Young British Artists) has produced a plymer gravure etching of the supermodel (estimate £600-800).

A unique 'self-portrait' of Andy Warhol (1928-1987) printed by the artist in 1967, in black and blue synthetic polymer and screenprint ink on red graphic art paper is also a fascinating highlight in the Vision 21 sale.

Warhol only ever printed a very small number of early works. As his career took off he was able to employ professional printers to assist him. The present work is particularly rare as it is one of the few that Warhol printed himself. Though other examples do exist, on various different sized sheets of coloured and white papers, the print was never properly editioned. This rare work is estimated at £15,000-20,000.

Striking portraits of Faye Dunaway and Elton John are among the photographs by Terry O'Neil - the famous British photographer who achieved his greatest success documenting the fashion style and celebrities of the 1960's. Shots include Dunaway sitting relaxed in a chair by the pool with an Oscar on the breakfast table and newspapers scattered around her (£600-800).

A photograph by Philippe Halsman, a Latvian-born American photographer, of Sammy Davis Jr. will also be sold (£600-800. Davis is perhaps best known for his 1950's hits such as “Candy Man” and “What Kind of Fool I am” and for his connections with the infamous Brat Pack. Halsman became famous in the 1940's, where he started a thirty-year collaboration with surrealist artist Salvador Dali.

Further stars in the sale include Uma Thurman, photographed by Albert Watson in New York in 1993 (£5,000 - 7,000) and Tilda Swinton, shot by the Douglas Brothers (Andrew & Stewart), which is expected to fetch £600 - 800. Each work is signed.

A diverse mix of art and design is offered at Vision 21 with work by up and coming artists as well as more established name such as Agnes Martin, Roy Lichtenstein, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Takashi Murakami, Marc Newson, Philippe Starck and Ron Arad.

Vision 21 is an innovative sale that delivers great design and diverse style and inspiration from 1945 to the present day. Conceived four years ago, Vision 21 encompasses Post War Paintings, Prints, Photographs, Sculpture and Modern Design. Bonhams in Knightsbridge has a long-held reputation for innovative ideas and, over the years, has introduced many new areas of collecting - such as Contemporary Ceramics and Rock and Pop Memorabilia, which have challenged traditional categories. The Vision 21 continues to attract a young fashionable crowd of both serious collectors, and those just looking to furnish a modern home.
