Yesterday's Sotheby's old master paintings sale in NY brought in a total of $2.89m (including fees) with roughly 82.3% of the 152 lots sold. The sale was conducted entirely online.

There were several impressive results achieved (all prices inc. fees). The above portrait by Lavinia Fontana made $187,500 over an estimate of $40k - $60k. A sweet Caspar Netscher made $250,000 over an estimate of $40k - $60k. A portrait attributed to Tintoretto, sold by the San Diego Museum of Art, made a very respectable $112,500 over an estimate of $10k - $15k. Equally, this sumptuous Danaë by Jacob van Loo made $275,000 over an estimate of $100k - $150k.

Lots sold without reserve all seemed to do rather well, a sign that no one can resist a good bargain perhaps.
