FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

London – 18 MARCH 2014 – Phillips is pleased to announce highlights from the April Under the Influence auction, featuring 207 lots with a combined pre-sale low estimate of £1,336,700 / €1,602,189 / $2,222,836 and a pre-sale high estimate of £1,955,300 / €2,343,872 / $3,251,537.

Under The Influence, a contemporary sale that occurs between seasons, is a more accessible auction that presents tomorrow’s blue chip artists today. Focusing on the work of emerging artists just entering the secondary market, contemporary masters, and Post-War icons, it acts as a barometer for the upcoming auction season.

“We are thrilled to offer a broad range of works by young artists who have recently been the center of attention, such as Parker Ito, Lucien Smith, Oscar Murillo and Dan Rees, in conjunction with the works of more established artists such as Antony Gormley, and Banksy. Following our success in December, the sale is once again featuring a large no-reserve section, which continues to be a great entry point for young collectors.” Tamila Kerimova, Head of Under The Influence Sale, London.
