Tamila Kerimova, Head of 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale: “The middle market remains a vibrant area for collectors across the globe, with bidders from fifty countries across six continents competing for works by emerging and established artists alike. George Condo’s Untitled led the sale, more-than-tripling its low estimate, and works by Daniel Buren, Günther Förg, Dana Schutz, and Lee Ufan saw a great depth of bidding. We are proud to have delivered a strong season in London this Spring, and look forward to the New York and Hong Kong sales in May.”
