Madonna Auctions: Steven Meisel, The Girlie Show and The Blond Ambition Tour

An incredible photograph of Madonna by Steven Meisel was on sale on Bonhams, one of the world’s largest auctioneers of fine art and antiques.

The image went to auction with a pre-sale estimate of just $5,000 – 7,000 and was sold for a whopping $23,750.

Despite soaring past estimates, the image did not beat the current record for a Madonna nude at auction. That title belongs to an earlier, more revealing shot which appeared in Playboy in 1985. It was sold for $37,500 in 2009 at Christie’s.
