Auction Preview: 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening and Day Sales, June 27 and 28, 2016 @Phillips London

With no photographs in its upcoming 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening sale, Phillips isn’t brining much photo excitement to the table this London season.

Overall, there are a total of 26 lots of photography available across the two sales, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £929000.
