A 1986 Andy Warhol self-portrait that was among the last of his paintings exhibited while he was alive has sold at a New York City auction for 27.5 million dollars (£16.8 million).
The stark red-on-black Self-Portrait had been estimated to bring up to 40 million dollars (£24.4 million) at Christie's auction house.
The painting is almost nine square feet (0.84 sq metres). It is considered a landmark work by the American Pop artist and was exhibited for the first time in London in 1986, just six months before Warhol's death.
Another Warhol self-portrait painted from 1963 to 1964 sold for 38.4 million dollars (£23.4 million) at Wednesday's auction.
The auction record for a Warhol is 71.7 million dollars (£43.8 million) for Green Car Crash.
Warhol died in February 1987 aged 58 from complications following surgery.
