Auction Preview: Contemporary Art, September 27, 2010 @Sotheby’s

Sotheby’s has its own version of the Fall Contemporary Art warm-up sale in New York later this month, with a decidedly mixed bag of photography (both known and unknown) buried among the paintings, sculpture and other artworks. There are only 24 lots of photography on offer in this sale, with a total High estimate for photography of $329700.

Here’s the statistical breakdown:
Total Low Lots (high estimate up to and including $10000): 11
Total Low Estimate (sum of high estimates of Low lots): $52700
Total Mid Lots (high estimate between $10000 and $50000): 13
Total Mid Estimate: $277000
Total High Lots (high estimate above $50000): 0
Total High Estimate: NA
The top photography lot by High estimate is lot 245, Elger Esser, Saone, France, 2001, at $30000-40000. (Image at right, top, via Sotheby’s.)
Here’s the very short list of photographers represented by more than one lot in the sale (with the number of lots in parentheses):

Vanessa Beecroft (2)

Philip-Lorca diCorcia (2)
Laurie Simmons (2)
