  • More than 350 works by Andy Warhol have been auctioned for more than $17 million in New York.

    The Christie's auction featured photographs and prints such asEndangered Species: San Francisco Silverspot, which fetched more than $1.2 million.

    Some of the works have never before been viewed by the public.

    Jackie, a screen print and paper collage of Jacqueline Kennedy, sold for just over $626,000, more than double its estimate.
