An unusual self-portrait of controversial model Kate Moss launched "the hammer"

September 28 2008

On the eve of an auction in London was sold to a self-portrait of British supermodel Kate Moss. The girl is depicted sitting with cigarette in hand, but the overall picture painted in lipstick.

When creating a portrait was also used blood musician Pete Doherty, former boyfriend of supermodel. At the top of the figure in his own hand signed: "Who needs blood when there is lipstick?". The portrait was auctioned at Lyon & Turnbull in London, but was sold privately after the auction ends. As explained by the agency representative of the auction house during the auction itself is the biggest proposed price was lower than the minimum amounts designated by the owner of the lot. Painting sold for 33,000 pounds (61,000 dollars).

We note that Moss self-portrait was exhibited together with evidence, written by Doherty on a napkin, which he sold to the representative figure Moss Gallery in London Bankrobber, which is exposed and now up for auction, reports AFP.
