NEW YORK (AP) - Works by Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons are among the highlights at auction next month.

Sotheby’s is offering a 1986 group of six Warhol self-portraits expected to bring between $25 million and $35 million on May 14.

The identical silk-screen images in different colors depict Warhol in his famous “fright wig.”

The current Warhol auction record is $105 million for his “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster).”

Koons‘ 7-foot-tall stainless steel sculpture of “Popeye” could bring $25 million at the same sale. It’s one of three.

Christie’s also is offering a Koons work on May 13.

His 9 ½-foot-long stainless steel “Jim Beam J.B. Turner Train” is estimated at $25 million. It’s filled with bourbon.

Koons‘ “Balloon Dog (Orange)” sold for $58.4 million last year, an auction record for the artist.
