Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Auction

Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Auction

Sale Overview

Cristian Albu and Rosanna Widen, co-heads of the Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Auction comment:

‘This was a record October Day Auction. We saw particularly strong prices for German artists – the Richters and Schuttes and German art in general sold particularly well. We saw truly global bidding for Andy Warhol’s Barbie, Portrait of Billyboy*, which doubled its high estimate, selling for £600,000 to an Asian buyer. The success of the Day Auction comes down to presenting and curating interesting sales, providing quality works at accessible prices – both from established names and younger artists - with an enormous amount of material fresh to the market, as highlighted by the fantastic success of a previously unseen Martin Kippenberger painting.’
