    ANDY WARHOL PORTRAIT OF GRACE KELLY AT DUBLIN FAIR

    Monday, September 19th, 2022
    Andy Warhol – Grace Kelly,

    A portrait of Grace Kelly by Andy Warhol will be offered by Gormley’s at Timeless, the Irish Antique Dealers’ Fair at the RDS in Dublin from September 23-25 with a preview on September 22. Warhol’s portrait of the actress is based on a still from her first film, Fourteen Hours, in 1951. Gormley’s has priced the screenprint at €200,000. The artist completed the edition in 1984 two years after the actress’s death, aged 52. 

    “Grace Kelly is extremely popular with collectors and investors as there are very few on sale at any one time,” Oliver Gormley said. “We sold one in 2019 for €136,000 and we expect this to sell for around €200,000 at Timeless, which reflects the appreciation in value for Warhol and high-end contemporary art”.
