The Andy Warhol Foundation is being sued over Polaroid images of Wayne Gretzky during his time with the Oilers in 1983. Frans Wynans claims he hired Warhol to paint a series of portraits in 1983 and that he has exclusive rights to use Gretzky’s “name, likeness, and photographs Warhol took of Gretzky for the project,” USA Today reports. Four of the Polaroids were recently sold at Christie’s for $9000.
