7 premiere prints coming to auction Jan. 30

New to the lineup of auctions presented by Heritage Auctions is a regular online fine art prints auction. The first of these auctions is slated for Jan. 30.

The Prints & Multiples Auction features 136 lots with works by a variety of pop culture art icons including Andy Warhol, LeRoy Nieman, Shepard Fairey, and Takashi Murakami, among others.

Future online Prints & Multiples Auctions are scheduled for Feb. 27, March 27, and May 29. In the event a Signature auction of art interest is scheduled, an online Prints & Multiples auction will not be held.

Prints Provide Enjoyment, Investment Options

With opening bids that range from $25 to $4,000, the team of Heritage Auctions hope auctions like these will appeal to collectors seeking art for their walls as well as items that could potentially increase in value over time. In addition, the online Prints & Multiples auctions afford collectors the opportunity to acquire signed editions.
