A portrait of the late actress Farrah Fawcett by Andy Warhol that she bequeathed with all her artwork to the University of Texas at Austin. The university sued actor Ryan O'Neal, her long-time lover, over a nearly identical portrait, done at the same time, in 1980, by Warhol. O'Neal counter-sued over the university's possession of the "Warhol napkin." A jury awarded O'Neal the portrait and decided the napkin drawing was owned equally by both sides. As a result, the napkin is up for auction Dec. 5 at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills.
