Cornelia Svedman, Director, Head of Sale: “Works by the masters of the Ecole de Paris such as Dufy, Chagall and Giacometti, were in notable demand and sold well in this sale. We are pleased to have set a new record for the medium for a work by Sophie Taeuber-Arp (lot 110) and also to see a strong price realised for the top lot of the sale by Kees van Dongen which sparked strong competition.”
