There are a few photographs buried in Phillips’ upcoming Under the Influence sale in London next week, but with no works in the highest estimate tier, it’s clearly a sale aimed at contemporary collectors searching for lower priced material. Overall, there are a total of 37 lots of photography available in the sale, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £239000.
Here’s the statistical breakdown:
|Total Low Lots (high estimate up to and including £5000)||18|
|Total Low Estimate (sum of high estimates of low lots)||£67000|
|Total Mid Lots (high estimate between £5000 and £25000)||19|
|Total Mid Estimate||£172000|
|Total High Lots (high estimate above £25000)||0|
|Total High Estimate||£0|
The top photography lot by High estimate is tied between two lots: lot 98, Shirin Neshat, Careless, 1997, (image above, middle, via Phillips) and lot 100, Gerard Rancinan, Yan Pei Ming Triptyque, 2011, both estimated at £15000-20000.
