Lady Gaga video portraits make more than $1m for charity

Robert Wilson's 23 Video Portraits of Lady Gaga were the star lots of the Watermill Center gala

Robert Wilson's 23 Video Portraits of Lady Gaga series achieved in excess of $1m at the Watermill Center gala in the Hamptons, USon July 26.

Each of the lots pays tribute to a different work of art, including Jacques Louis David's The Death of Marat and Andrea Solaris' Head of Saint John the Baptist.

The series came about after Wilson was given a residency at the Louvre in Paris - with each of the shorts inspired by a painting from the museum's collection.

Eachlotconsists of a large plasma screen that displays the film.

Wilson described the singer in a Wall Street Journal interview as "highly disciplined and a perfectionist, and she has an inner concentration and beauty."

We believe that Lady Gaga has the potential to become a collectible icon of the future.
