SOTHEBY’S. Londra, 15 febbraio 2012

La Evening Sale ha totalizzato 50,688,450 GBP ($ 79.672.106/euro 60.719.674) con una percentuale di venduto altissima, pari a 90.5 % by lot e 94.6% by value. Acquirenti da oltre 20 paesi hanno partecipato all’asta. 9 opere sono state vendute ad oltre 1 milione di sterline e 21 lotti sono stati aggiudicati ad oltre 1 milione di dollari.   2 nuovi Record sono stati stabiliti per A. R. Penck e Albert Oehlen Per quanto riguarda l’arte italiana va segnalato l’ottimo risultato realizzato da Nero Plastica di Albero Burri, un’importante plastica nera vulcanizzata del 1965 che da una stima di £ 800.000- 1.200.000 è andato venduto, raddoppiando le stime iniziali, a £ 2.057.250 (euro 2.464.379).

Cheyenne Westphal, Sotheby’s Chairman of Contemporary Art Europe, ha commentato: “We’re extremely pleased with the results of tonight’s sale and the above-estimate total of £50 million which we achieved. We witnessed a huge depth of international bidding right across the auction, with buyers coming from no fewer than 20 countries. Gerhard Richter once again dominated, with all six of his works selling for an aggregate sum of £17.6 million, above the combined estimate for the group of £14.8 million, with four of the pieces falling within the top-ten selling works in the sale” Commentando la performance della sezione dedicata alla British Art, Oliver Barker, Deputy Chairman Sotheby’s Europe and Senior International Specialist, Contemporary Art, ha dichiarato: “British Art performed very well this evening. We are delighted with the prices achieved for Lucian Freud’s ‘Lord Goodman’ and ‘Gorse Sprig’ works, and the record for an Egyptian palette series work by Bridget Riley and the sterling record for a work by Howard Hodgkin.”
