Rebecca Tooby-Desmond, Head of Sale and Auctioneer, said, “We are delighted to start the season with such strong results and exceptional sell-through rates of 100% by value and 98% by lot; realising prices above the high estimate for over 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 was incredibly energising and is a testament to the global appetite for our unique curation of Modern and Contemporary Editions. The fantastic prices achieved for a selection of iconic works by Andy Warhol, including those from the Collection of Toni Schumacher, reveal the demand for high quality rare-to-market prints and multiples, and demonstrates the breadth of Phillips’ cross-category collector base. The vibrancy and resilience of the editions market promises exciting results as we look forward to our New York Editions and Works on Paper sale on the 21st October.”
