Simon Tovey, Head of New Now Sale in London, said: “The middle market remains a vibrant area for collectors around the world, as we saw widespread competition for the rich diversity of artists included in this sale platform. With strong sell-through rates of 90% by value and 84% by lot, the sale was led by Anish Kapoor’s Monochrome (Lilac), whose work is the recent focus of an exhibition at Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery in London. We were delighted to include an exciting section of work sold to benefit Migrate Art, totalling £148,065, with proceeds going towards improving the lives of refugees. Barry Reigate’s partnership with MATCHESFASHION.COM received an enthusiastic response with six doors sold to benefit Carney’s Community. Further top results were achieved for Damien Hirst, Urs Fischer, Ai Weiwei and Peter Halley.”
