Phillips kicks off the Fall Contemporary Art season in London next week with its Evening and Day sales on the 15th and 16th. With no photographs in the Evening sale, the photography offerings are on the thin side, generally secondary images by bold faced names. Overall, there are a total of 30 lots of photography available across the two sales, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £811000.
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)||21|
|Total Mid Estimate||£351000|
|Total High Lots (high estimate above £25000)||9|
|Total High Estimate||£460000|
The top lot by High estimate is tied between two lots: lot 154, John Baldessari, Prima Facie (Fifth State): Gentle Butterfly/Grassy Fields, 2006 (image above, middle, via Phillips), and lot 206, Andreas Gursky, Untitled XII (No. 4), 2000 (image above, right, via Phillips), both estimated at £60000-80000.
