Stephen Colbert Self-Portrait Sells For 26K At Auction!

stephen colbert self portrait sells for 26k

Wonder how much a Jon Stewart would go for….or if we want to go REALLY vintage, how about a Craig Kilborn! LOLz.

During an auction to benefit childhood education at Phillips de Pury & Company yesterday, a self-portrait of Stephen Colbert sold for $26,000!

The portrait depicts "Colbert saluting in front of several more images of himself," and it was defaced/enhanced by artists Frank Stella, Andres Serrano, and Shepard Fairey.

Here's what Stephen had to say about it during the auction:

"We're doing this for children."

"If you're not raising your paddle it means you hate children."

"I will personally hang this portrait."

Guess Stephen was pret-ty convincing, because his artwork made lots of $$$!

Hmm…wonder how much we could fetch for a self-portrait…

    He didn't paint it, it's not 'self portrait" its just a portrait~ the coolest portrait ever~ A similar one was put in the smithsonian a couple years ago~ this one was added to by those artists while Steve Martin looked on and decided when it was "art" hahah :-)
    All procedes went to charity~ could you please plug his charity?

    So glad he did this (sold it, not painted it) - it's going to a great charity Donors Choose.
