Any Andy Warhol fans out there should be thrilled to learn that Phillips de Pury & Company is putting on an auction that will include many of the iconic artist's works. Taking place at the auction house's 450 Park Ave headquarters, the luxury art auction will also feature important works by many other prominent artists, like Pablo Picasso and Cy Twombly.

Of the Warhol offerings there is â??Diamond Dust Shoesâ?? and "Shoes", 1980, his homage to femininity and luxury. "Diamond" is estimated at $200,000 to $300,00 and "Shoes" is estimated at a lower $40,000 to $60,000. The prints (both framed and in good condition) combine all of Warhol's favorite themes of Hollywood glamour, wealth, and image. The artist apparently sent his assistants out to find the many pairs of vintage and modern shoes for his photos.
