Phillips’ 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening and Day sales in London later this week offer a pretty thin photography selection. With no photographs available in the Evening sale, the Day sale is left to carry the photographic load, wandering into somewhat lesser known and newer photographic material. Led by a Matthew Barney Cremaster triptych, there are a total of 21 lots of photography available across the two sales, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £320000.
Here’s the statistical breakdown:
|Total Low Lots (high estimate up to and including £5000)||0|
|Total Low Estimate (sum of high estimates of low lots)||£0|
|Total Mid Lots (high estimate between £5000 and £25000)||18|
|Total Mid Estimate||£205000|
|Total High Lots (high estimate above £25000)||3|
|Total High Estimate||£115000|
The top photography lot by High estimate is lot 207, Matthew Barney, Cremaster 4: Triple Option (Triptych), 1994, estimated at £30000-50000 (image above, via Phillips).
