Looks like Sandra Bullock's little man is already an art aficionado!

According to US Weekly, Sandra attended the amFAR Inspiration Gala on Thursday night in Los Angeles, where her agent bought Andy Warhol's iconic "Peaches" print as a gift for little Louis. The price tag? A whopping $14,000!

"I want to thank Kevin Huvane and Bryan Lourd for not being cheap f-cks and gifting my son with his first Warhol," Bullock joked. The big-time art purchase was for a good cause, though — all proceeds from the event benefit amFAR's AIDS research.

Sandra attended the event to honor the late Elizabeth Taylor, who helped to create amFAR in 1985. Bullock spoke very highly of Taylor, who passed away in March at the age of 79. "Earlier this year, the world lost a radiant woman of courage and compassion. She lives on in every person she touched."

"She never thought twice to put her arm around someone who was suffering, and that is the gift we have a human beings, the ability to reach out and touch another human being," Sandra went on to say. "Tonight we can honor this extraordinary woman and finish what she started."
