NEW YORK, NY.- Just in time for the annual online shopping ritual now known as Cyber Monday, Christie’s announces Andy Warhol@Christie’s: A Christmas Thing, a holiday-themed online-only sale of 99 original artworks by Andy Warhol. This sale will continue Andy Warhol@Christie’s, the series of online-only auctions in partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Taking its name from the tongue-in-cheek title Warhol gave to one of the sale’s featured artworks, A Christmas Thing is a season sale featuring holiday-themed works depicting Santa Claus, angels and other holiday iconography, along with more classical subjects for which the artist is best known. Designed with gift-giving in mind, the sale features approachably-priced photographs, prints, Polaroids, and original drawings with starting bids at $800.

“We are delighted to present A Christmas Thing, a seasonal edition of our ongoing series of online-only sales dedicated to Andy Warhol. Buyers from over 50 different countries have already purchased an original work from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts through Christie’s since our multi-year partnership was first announced in 2012,” said Amelia Manderscheid, Head of E-commerce for Post-War & Contemporary Art at Christie’s. “Given Warhol’s broad universal appeal as the leader of the Pop Art movement, we hope gift-givers around the world will enjoy playing Santa this year and making a gift of an original Andy Warhol artwork, while at the same time supporting the many wonderful projects that the Foundation carries on in his name.”

A Christmas Thing opens for bidding on Monday December 2 and will remain open for competitive bids through Wednesday, December 11. All browsing and bidding is done online, with the click of a mouse.

Andy Warhol is widely recognized as one of the defining figures of 20th century art and culture, as well as a philanthropist of extraordinary generosity. As an artist, he unabashedly embraced the populist and the commercial. As a philanthropist, he ensured that his giving would extend past his death by establishing The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which received almost the entirety of his estate. Proceeds from this sale and all subsequent sales under the partnership benefit the Warhol Foundation’s grant-making programs in support of artists and non-profit arts organizations.
