Sotheby's NY Old Master sales (ctd.)

February 7 2018

Video: Sotheby's

I've been meaning to report on the success of Sotheby's Old Master sales in New York. The total for the week was $82.5m, more than double the same series of sales made last year. The totals were at, or exceeded, the higher estimates. I know AHNers will be tired of me saying 'the Old Master market isn't dead', so I won't go on about some of the soaraway lots (except to point you to the above video of a fine portrait of the Prince of Orange by Van Dyck, which made $2.4m). But I think it may now be time to say, 'the Old Master market is alive and kicking'. More on the results here
