Prints and Multiples
Event date 28 February - 16 March
Event location London, New York
The international Prints and Multiples March series achieved a combined total of US$9,703,953 across a live auction in New York and two online sales in London. The Contemporary Edition auctions showcased Christie’s global presence in this field: the London edition was led by Banksy’s NOLA (Green Rain) realising £151,200, while the top lot for the New York edition was David Hockney’s Walking Past Two Chairs, from Moving Focus, selling for £88,200. Andy Warhol’s Goethe took top billing in the Prints and Multiples sale, reaching £604,800, and the auction sold 92% by lot. Coinciding with a global commemoration of Pablo Picasso and his legacy on the 50th anniversary of his death, several of the most desirable prints by the artist highlighted the auctions, including Buste de femme d’après Cranach le Jeune realising £567,000. The spring season continues with a two-part live auction of Prints and Multiples in New York on 19 and 20 April, with exceptional examples of iconic modern prints as well as post-war and contemporary editions.
