More than 100 of Andy Warhol's photographs, prints, and drawings of the male nude are up for bid. 

A June sale at Christie’s of the artist's work, sourced directly from the collection of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, are an insight into Warhol’s most exclusive and intimate world. The majority of them have never been seen in public.

Bidding in the curated sale, titled "Andy’s Eye Candy," began on Thursday and ends at noon Eastern on June 10. Learn more at http://www.christies.com/warhol.

Many of the pieces found at the Christies.com auction contain mature subject matter, including artwork containing nudity and sexual conduct. A selection of the less explicit art is on the following pages.
