A Kate Moss self-portrait painted by the model in lipstick and inscribed in blood by Pete Doherty is expected to fetch between £30,000 and £40,000 at auction on Saturday (September 27).

Although it is not signed by Moss, Doherty has inscribed the 48in x 36in creation with the words "Who needs blood when you've got lipstick?".

The painting was purchased from Doherty's private collection, and comes with a receipt of sale written by the Babyshambles frontman on a napkin.

Painted in 2005-2006, the canvas on which the artwork was originally drawn cost Doherty just £15, reports The Daily Telegraph.

A blood painting by Doherty is also set to be sold at the Lyon & Turnbull auction, and is expected to fetch between £8,000 and £10,000.
