London: A topless sketch of Hollywood star Kate Winslet, which featured in her Oscar-winning movie `Titanic`, is going under the hammer.

The portrait is expected to fetch as much as USD 16,000 at auction, reported a daily.

The illustration of the 35-year-old actress reclining on a sofa wearing nothing but a diamond necklace is sketched by Leonardo DiCaprio`s character Jack Dawson in the 1997 epic film.

Director James Cameron actually drew the sketch, which features the initials of DiCaprio`s character and the date April 14, 1912 - the day before the `Titanic` sank.

Cameron`s artwork is expected to be the star lot at Premiere Props` memorabilia auction over the weekend.

"This is a wonderful piece of memorabilia (from) one the biggest grossing films of all time," said a spokesperson for the firm.
