Phillips seems to have dropped the ball on the photo consignments for its upcoming Contemporary Art Evening and Day sales in London. With no photography lots in the Evening sale and a thin sampling in the Day sale, there’s almost too little to merit a report. Overall, there are a total of 17 lots of photography available across the two sales, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £368000.
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)||12|
|Total Mid Estimate||£193000|
|Total High Lots (high estimate above £25000)||5|
|Total High Estimate||£175000|
The top lot by High estimate is lot 224, Vitaliy and Elena Vasilieva, Project ‘Apocalypse in Art’, 2014, estimated at £30000-50000.
Here’s the very short list of photographers with two or more lots in the sales, along with the number of lots on offer:
