Yesterday's online sale at Sotheby's in collaboration with the dealer Danny Katz achieved an impressive £2.26m (inc. fees). 92.2% of the lots on offer were sold. Further proof that online sales are producing strong results in these uncertain times.

The sale consisted of a mixture of sculpture, modern pictures and some fine British works on paper. This included a fine selection of Zoffany drawings that were only recently unveiled by fellow dealer Andrew Clayton-Payne. Quite a few pieces soared above their estimates, including this Roman arm which sold for £175,000 over £30,000 - £50,000.

My favourite picture in the sale was the Sickert pictured above, which sold for £22,500 over an estimate of £8,000 - £12,000.
