LONDON (AP) - Nude photographs of Kate Moss will be sold at an auction in London next month among a series of other pictures of the British supermodel.
The photos will be auctioned May 31, Christie's auctioneers said Monday.
Two nude portraits, a 1996 print by Irving Penn and a 6-by-6-foot square image by Albert Watson, are expected to sell for about $44,000 and $30,000 respectively, the auction house said.
A set of six prints of Moss without makeup, taken by Chuck Close, could sell for up to $40,000, Christie's said.
An unpublished photo, being sold by one of the 33-year-old's friends, is expected to sell for about $12,000. The portrait, taken by photographer Corinne Day in 1990, was shot in London two years after Moss was discovered at a New York airport at age 14.
Another shot taken by Day in 1993 for Vogue magazine, which features a 19-year-old Moss, is expected to sell for $14,000. The Vogue shoot helped propel the grunge movement into the mainstream and launch the "heroin chic" look in the 1990s.
