Works by Andy Warhol will feature in a pop-up sales exhibition presented by Christie’s in San Francisco this month.

The week-long private sales exhibition will be held in the third-floor gallery space of the Mulberry store in San Francisco’s financial district. It will feature 36 photographs, prints and works on paper by Andy Warhol, many of which have never been seen before by the public. They will be offered at price points ranging from $2,000 to $30,000.

The works include holiday-themed works on paper from early in the pop artist’s career when he worked as a commercial illustrator in the 1950s, and several Polaroid prints from the 1980s with subjects ranging from Santa Claus to Cabbage Patch Kids dolls.

Admission to the exhibition is free and open to the public. The pop-up is the latest in a series of thematic exhibitions by Christie’s Private Sales and the fifth in the United States in partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

“We are excited to partner with Mulberry and Town & Country to present a truly unique exhibition devoted to the holiday theme of the iconic master of Pop Art,” said Amelia Manderschied, Christie’s specialist of post-war and contemporary art and head of sale for Andy Warhol at Christie’s. “With all works of art sourcing from the Warhol Foundation, this is a fantastic opportunity to buy a one-of-a-kind holiday gift while benefiting an outstanding arts organization.”
