After a very thin photography outing at its London Contemporary Art sales earlier this winter, Phillips has rebounded with the most photographic value on offer in this upcoming early summer season in London. Led by an Andreas Gursky stock exchange, it’s a tight grouping highlighted by multiple Gilbert & George and Cindy Sherman works. Overall, there are a total of 22 lots of photography available across the two sales, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £2822000.
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)||9|
|Total Mid Estimate||£117000|
|Total High Lots (high estimate above £25000)||13|
|Total High Estimate||£2705000|
The top photography lot by High estimate is lot 17, Andreas Gursky, Chicago, Mercantile Exchange, 1997, estimated at £650000-850000 (image above, via Phillips).
