First Live Auction of the Fall Season Achieves $4.9 million and Establishes 51 World Auction Records

Phillips started its season with exceptional sell-through rates of 100% by value and 98% by lot; realizing prices above the high estimate for more than a third of all works offered, and achieving 51 new auction records. The depth and strength of bidding from our international collector base across 50 countries achieved strong results for a selection of iconic works by Andy Warhol, including those from the Collection of Toni Schumacher, revealing the demand for high quality rare-to-market prints and multiples. The resilience of the editions market promises exciting results as we look forward to our New York Editions and Works on Paper sale on 21 October 2020.
