The battle between which auction house can create the most immersive sweeping view video continues.

Sotheby's have released the following film giving an evocative representation of Turner's Purfleet and the Essex Shore as seen from Long Reach. The painting will feature within their evening sale on 7th July 2021 carrying an estimate of £4m - £6m.

Will these sorts of presentations become a staple of the summer and winter sales?
