Not quite what they anticipated, but still a success, we'd say!

We reported after the death of Elizabeth Taylor that an Andy Warhol painting done of the icon, titled Liz #5, was to be auctioned off via Phillips de Pury & Company and estimated to sell for around $30 million!

Well, they weren't too far off, because at last night's event, it brought in an impressive $27 million!

Wonderful!

We hope wherever it ends up, her memory is honored and the work is well-maintained!

    Idiots. Realy, really, ridiculously stupid idiots!

    im amazed. i understand some art will come with a price but $27 mil on a painting when theres millions of people starving in this world… just ridiculous

    I don't care who painted it. She looks like a clown. I can't believe he did that to her and I am shocked someone paid that much for it. A fool and his money…

    So overrated.



  5. 5

    with so many people in the world dying of hunger, it's an absurd to see people paying so much for a painting, even if God painted it himself. pathetic, ridiculous, a shame for the human race!

    lol theres perfect replicas. i enjoy this work anyway.

    I liked his Tomato Soup can better. I actually thought this was a pic of Anne Hathaway.

    I love Andy Warhol, but all he did with his "art work" was take pictures and screen colors over them. That is not that hard. People act like he created the Sistine Chapel.

    I always thought that Andy Warhol was over-rated. Elizabeth Taylor was beautiful but she looks like the Joker from Batman in this painting!!

    Has a small resembalance to Anne Hathaway.

    Sounds like a good deal…Warhol loved Taylor, Gaga loves Warhol, de Pury loves Gaga, and I'm sure Taylor would love that he sold a painting of her for $27 million. Everyone's happy!
