LONDON.- The first part of the group of artworks from the collection of the world-famous American supermodel and actress, Jerry Hall, went under the hammer in Sotheby’s Evening Sale of Contemporary Art in London tonight, bringing a total of £2,336,650 - well-above expectations for the entire collection of £1.5 million. The second part of the group (the remaining eight art works) will be auctioned at Sotheby’s tomorrow.

Among the six works presented for sale this evening, highlights were:

• Andy Warhol’s Dollar Sign, which the artist gifted to Jerry Hall in recognition of her help with the production of his television show, Warhol TV. This sold tonight for £217,250 above its high estimate of £120,000-150,000

• Lucian Freud’s oil on canvas Eight Months Gone – an intimate portrayal of Jerry reclining eight months pregnant with her fourth child Gabriel which Freud painted after meeting Jerry Hall at a dinner party – brought £601,250 (est. £300,000-400,000), while his Quinces made £313,250 (est. £150,000-200,000)

• Frank Auerbach’s Head of Helen Gillespie, acquired by Jerry in 1997, sold for £1,071,650 (est. £700,000-900,000).

This exceptional collection reflects two chapters of Miss Hall’s extraordinary life and career: firstly at the forefront of the glamorous avant-garde in 1970s and 1980s New York and subsequently her family-oriented life in London , the adored city of Lucian Freud and Frank Auerbach.
