NEW YORK (Reuters) - A nude photograph of film director Roman Polanski and his wife Sharon Tate, taken shortly before she was brutally murdered, sold for $11,250 at an auction on Monday, with the director’s recent arrest fuelling interest.

The large-scale gelatin silver print was from an image taken by English photographer David Bailey in 1969 just months before actress Tate and four others were slain by followers of Charles Manson. It was printed in 1988 for a traveling exhibition.

The roughly 33-inch by 33-inch portrait depicts the couple from the waist up, their arms on or around each other and gazing into the lens. It had been expected to raise between $8,000 and $12,000.

On the night of Aug. 8, 1969, followers of cult leader Charles Manson entered the rented Los Angeles home of famed film director Roman Polanski and his pregnant wife, burgeoning actress Sharon Tate. At Manson’s direction, the followers murdered 26-year-old Tate and four of her friends in brutal killings that rocked Hollywood— and the rest of the nation— making Manson a household name over the last five decades. Polanski was out of the country the night Tate, who was was two weeks away from delivering their child, was slayed.

The murders, subsequent trial and Polanski himself, have re-entered the national spotlight following Manson’s recent hospitalization on Tuesday for a reported heart-related problem.

Sadly, the murder of Tate and her friends through vicious stabbings and shootings was only the first wave of violence inflicted by Manson and his followers. The following night, two more people were killed under Manson’s orders. Over the course of those two nights, 169 stab wounds and seven .22-caliber gunshot wounds were suffered by the victims, according to CNN .
