Christie's to Auction Malala Portrait

53 views 2 days ago
A portrait of Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban for courageously campaigning for girls' education, is to be offered at auction by Christie's. Artist Jonathan Yeo has donated the painting expected to fetch $60,000-80,000 (£36,000 - £48,000), to benefit the Malala Fund, a charity set up by Malala to support the fight for girls' right to education. Jonathan Yeo is one of Britain's most renowned portrait painters and first met Malala when she was recovering from a severe head injury after being shot by the Taliban. She is now living in Birmingham where she was treated for her head injuries. The portrait will be sold at auction at the Post-War and Contemporary Art Day sale 14 May 2014 in New York
Exhibition: 2-13 May 2014
Sale: 14 May 2014
