Latin American Sale
Christie’s two-day sales of Latin American Art totaled $17,966,450/£11,318,864/€14,013,831 and achieved twenty-eight world auction records.
Virgilio Garza, Head of Latin American Art, said: “Building from the excitement of great prices achieved in the Latin American evening sale, we had an energetic Day Session of Latin American art, demonstrating the strength of the middle market across all categories, ranging from the Spanish Colonial to the contemporary. There was fast-paced and spirited bidding in the room and online, with 18% of lots bought or directly underbid by a Christie's LIVE™ client. Thirty auction records were achieved over the two days of Latin American sales, which included Arnaldo Roche Rabell, Tomás Sánchez, Olga de Amaral, Carmen Herrera, Iberê Camargo, and Oscar Muñoz.”
