A portrait painted by Andy Warhol has been put up for sale after being featured in Netflix’s new series Andy Warhol’s Diaries.
The documentary, which released March 9 on Netflix, is executive produced by Ryan Murphy and features many talking heads close to Warhol. Through the use of AI, viewers can also hear the artist narrate his own diary entries.
The painting in question was created in 1981 and depicts Warhol’s last friend, Jon Gould.
Gould was an executive at Paramount Studios, and his relationship with Warhol is the focus of a number of episodes of Andy Warhol’s Diaries.
The piece is currently owned by Dr. Lynn Howard and is being sold by art dealer Robert Dupont, who said the piece was last valued at $750,000 (£570,000) in 2009.
“She thinks now is the time to launch it,” Dupont said page six. “Maybe Ryan Murphy should buy it.”
Through May, the painting will be featured in a gallery exhibition at Ben Brown Fine Arts Gallery in Palm Beach, curated by Warhol muse “Baby” Jane Holzer.
Andy Warhol’s Diaries is now on Netflix.
