Phillips’ Evening & Day Editions Auctions Achieve £5.2 Million, Marking the Highest Ever Total in London

 

 

London, 14 & 15 June 2022

Sale Total: £5,264,658/ $6,385,504 / €6,117,006

Lots Sold: 286 | Lots Offered: 300

Sold by Lot: 95% | Sold by Value: 97%

 

 

Rebecca Tooby-Desmond, Head of Sale and Auctioneer, said, “We are delighted to set a new record sale total in London with the result of £5.2 million achieved in our Evening and Day Editions auctions, which were 95% sold by lot and 97% sold by value. The breadth of art on offer drew a truly international audience with a great depth of bidding throughout from collectors in 50 countries worldwide. Contemporary editions from the 1970s and 80s led the auction with two works by Keith Haring and five works by Any Warhol featuring prominently in the top ten lots. Following the Queen’s jubilee celebrations last week Warhol’s Queen Elizabeth II very fittingly brought in the top price in the auction, selling for £352,800, over three times the estimate. Ahead of our dedicated David Hockney auction in September we were also thrilled to sell all Hockney works above their high estimates, setting a new auction record for Untitled No. 1, from The Yosemite Suite, proving that now really is the time to sell Hockney! It has been a remarkable season since we expanded our global editions calendar of sales and we look forward to the Summer Editions auction finale which will take place on 25 June in Southampton, New York.”
