Tamila Kerimova, Head of 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale, said, “Building on the strong results of our Evening Sale, our Day Sale totaled £8.5 million. The enhanced live auction experience was broadcast worldwide from our purpose-built studio in London, as collectors from 53 countries competed throughout the sale. The number of online registrants reached an unprecedented level, adding to the energy and excitement of the saleroom. The top ten demonstrates our distinctive strategy of positioning key artistic voices of the 20th century alongside leading contemporary names, with notable prices achieved for the group of five Alexander Calder sculptures from an Important Private Parisian Collection. We saw great depth of bidding for Stanley Whitney, as well as Banksy and Loie Hollowell. We look forward to continuing this momentum in the lead up to our sales in Hong Kong and New York.”
