An iconic painting by late pop artist Andy Warhol is expected to fetch up to $50 million (£33.3 million) when it goes on the auction block next month (Nov10).
Christie's auction house is set to sell off Warhol's Big Campbell's Soup Can with Can Opener (Vegetable), a 1962 painting currently owned by Seattle art collector Barney Ebsworth.
Auctioneers expect to fetch the multi-million dollar sum because only 11 large-scale soup-can paintings are in existence, and all but three are held by museums.
A spokesperson for Christie's tells the New York Post, "It's an incredibly important, very iconic work. When he painted the soup can picture... it changed the course of art history. No one had seen anyone do anything like this."
