Andy Warhol painting of the Queen expected to hit £60K

ONE of Andy Warhol’s final works could raise £60,000 when it is auctioned this week.

The copy of the American pop artist’s 1985 portrait of the Queen is based on another portrait created for the 1977 Silver Jubilee.

It is part of a series called Reigning Queens which also included images of the Queens of Denmark, the Netherlands and Swaziland.
