Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty's blood artwork sells for $56,000

A painting created by late singer Amy Winehouse and her rocker pal Pete Doherty using their own blood sold for $56,000 on Friday night (11May12).

The joint artwork, titled Ladylike, was unveiled by The Libertines frontman Doherty at an exhibition earlier this year (12) and was put up for auction in London alongside other personal effects, including guitars and diaries.

The bizarre artwork fetched $56,000 - much lower than the $128,000 it was expected to sell for.

A portion of profits from the sale will be donated to The Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up after the Rehab singer's death last year (11).
