“I’m having boys come and model nude for photos for the new paintings I’m doing,” Andy Warhol told his secretary in 1977. “But I shouldn’t call them nudes. It should be something more artistic. Like ‘Landscapes’.” Now, in honor of LGBT Pride Month, Christie’s Auction House sifted through the Warholian archives for “Andy’s Eye Candy,” an online auction of those landscapes, featuring more than 100 prints, photographs, and drawings that mine the complexities of sexual desire.

The collection — an exploration of what the Huffington Post calls “the male-on-male gaze” — follows the evolution of Warhol’s nudes, from the sketches of the ’50s on through the photographs of the mid-’80s. If you’re in the market, you have till June 10th to place a bid. For everyone else, well, there’s always the catalogue. Here are some of the more SFW highlights of what’s on offer.
