While plenty of positive surprises created some positive momentum, in the end, the Total Sale Proceeds fell far below the aggregate pre-sale high estimate.... Read more at Collector Daily.

A Moholy-Nagy photogram was the top outcome at the recent Modern and Contemporary Photographs sale at Grisebach in Berlin, becoming the highest priced photograph (€487500) ever sold at auction in Germany. 16 positive surprises buoyed the rest of the sale, and while the overall Buy-In rate came in over 39%, the Total Sale Proceeds found their way to the middle of the aggregate pre-sale estimate range....

There were plenty of Polaroids available at the ULTIMATE Photographs Evening and Day sales at Phillips in London last week, and most performed admirably. While a panoramic Helmut Newton nude was the top lot, with an overall Buy-In rate under 15% and more than a dozen positive surprises, the Total Sale Proceeds came in near the top of the aggregate pre-sale estimate range....

Auction Results: Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening, Morning, and Afternoon Sales, May 17 and 18, 2018 @Christie’s https://collectordaily.com/auction-results-post-war-and-contemporary-art-evening-morning-and-afternoon-sales-may-17-and-18-2018-christies/ https://collectordaily.com/auction-results-post-war-and-contemporary-art-evening-morning-and-afternoon-sales-may-17-and-18-2018-christies/#respond Tue, 22 May 2018 12:47:14 +0000 https://collectordaily.com/?p=54194

The photography included in Christie’s recent Post-War and Contemporary Art sales in New York was scattered and haphazard, almost like an afterthought. Without many photo consignments of interest, the top lot fell to a David Wojnarowicz collage, and for the works that were available, the Buy-In rate topped 35%. With no positive surprises to catalyze any action, the Total Sale Proceeds fell just below the low end of the aggregate pre-sale estimate range for photography.... Read more at Collector Daily.

It was a workmanlike outing at the recent Photographs sale at Christie’s in London. While the overall Buy-In rate creeped up toward 30%, there were enough positive surprises to keep the momentum up, leading to Total Sale Proceeds that hit the middle of the aggregate pre-sale estimate range. A Robert Mapplethorpe double portrait took the top lot honors.... Read more at Collector Daily.

Sotheby’s got the Spring photography auction season in London started last week with its various owner Photographs sale. Led by a Richard Avedon portfolio (which found a buyer), the sale generally met expectations. The overall Buy-In rate hovered above 27%, but with a handful of largely lower-end surprises to pick up some of the slack, the Total Sale Proceeds fell squarely in the middle of the aggregate pre-sale range....

While there were no photography lots in the Evening sale to tempt well-heeled collectors, the photography available in Sotheby’s recent Contemporary Art sales in New York largely performed to expectations. The top lot Andreas Gursky print found a buyer, and with a reasonable Buy-In rate for photography (just over 17%) and a few positive surprises (including a Cindy Sherman film still), the Total Sale Proceeds for photography found their way to the middle of the aggregate pre-sale estimate range....

The results for the photography included in Phillips’ recent 20th Century and Contemporary Art auctions in New York were consistently solid. The top lot Cindy Sherman history portrait sold within its range, and was bested for top honors by a single click Photoshop composition by Cory Arcangel. The overall Buy-In rate for photography was roughly 10%, and while there was only one positive surprise (a Wolfgang Tillmans portrait), the Total Sale Proceeds for photography came in above the high end of the aggregate pre-sale estimate range....

The results of the recent sale of photographs and photobooks at Swann were generally softer than usual. While there were plenty of positive surprises in the vernacular photography section, there were fewer than normal in the other sections, and with a Buy-In rate over 30%, there just wasn’t enough extra buyer energy to keep the momentum up. The top outcome was the cover lot Walker Evans image of the River Rouge plant (at just over $57K), but the Total Sale Proceeds feel just below the low end of the aggregate pre-sale estimate range....
