Charlotte Gibbs, Associate Specialist, Head of New Now, said, “We are delighted with the result of £5.3 Million achieved today. Fourteen world auction records were established for artists including Szabolcs Bozó, and Evgen Copi Gorišek, and further exceptional results were achieved for Kehinde Wiley’s Ferdinand-Philippe-Louis-Henri, Duc d'Orléans, Annie Morris’ Stack 9 Ultramarine Blue, 2018 and Doron Langberg’s Nisan and Idan in the Studio. The strong depth of bidding throughout the sale and results achieved show a high level of confidence among collectors of 20th Century & Contemporary Art and delivers a positive message to the market. Our international team continues to produce carefully curated sales which shine a light on high quality work by emerging and established contemporary artists, and we look forward to our contemporary sales in New York on 18 and 19 May.
