(Relaxnews) – A week-long open exhibition of Andy Warhol’s Christmas-themed work is to appear at the San Francisco store of leather fashion house Mulberry, in conjunction with auction house Christie’s.

Photographs, prints, and paper-based works are due to be displayed during the December 13-19 short run exhibit, some of which works date from Warhol’s time in commercial illustration during the 1950s.

A selection of Polaroid prints cover subjects such as Santa Claus and 1980s toy range The Cabbage Patch Kids.

Locating the free entry private sales exhibition in San Francisco’s financial district makes sense, given that the works are being offered from $2,000 up to $30,000.

It’s the fifth in a series of collaborations between the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Christie’s, which has seen both live and online auctions accompany similar local exhibitions.

The Mulberry store is at 166 Grant Avenue in San Francisco, with hours running 10am to 7pm (6pm Sunday).
