Adrian Hume-Sayer, Head of sale, Private Collections:  We are pleased with the strong results achieved for the sale of The Brian Juhos Collection, from a Domaine in Southern France, which saw robust bidding throughout and far exceeded its pre-sale high estimate. Brian Juhos’s collection presented a rich unified look, which, combined with the generally excellent condition of the lots offered, resonated with a broad spectrum of buyers both from the UK and abroad. The viewing was particularly well attended and very well received as was the auction itself, which saw a busy sale room throughout. There was particularly fierce competition for some of the top lots, led by the monumental statuary marble busts of Paris and Perseus, after Antonio Canova, which sold for more than five times its low estimate realising £109,875.
