Andy Warhol‘s first self-portrait will presumably fetch a cool $7.8 million USD at Sotheby’s. The iconic artist had captured his own image using a strip of photographs inside a photo-booth at a dime store in New York City, as per Sotheby’s senior specialist in contemporary art, James Sevier. Soon afterwards, Warhol began capturing more and more self-portraits which would be one of the most significant aspects of his artwork as a whole. The self-portrait, which depicts the artist wearing a pair of black sunglasses, will hit the renowned art dealer’s auction block in London this coming June 28.
