Phillips de Pury & Company Auction house is scheduled to commence their Contemporary Art Evening and Day over the next few days, with an evening auction tonight on the 12th, and a day auction on the 13th. With all the major auction houses hosting Contemporary Art auctions this month, a lot of great pieces have been put on sale. We saw last week the record setting Sotheby’s sale, and the evening auction at Christie’s last night fetching prices above the estimated figure on many occasions. It’ll be interesting to see the outcome for the Phillips de Pury auction.
Included on sale are a lot of our favourites the likes of Bruce Nauman, Richard Prince, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Banksy, Banks Violette, Terrence Koh, Kaws, Julian Opie, Dan Colen, Cindy Sherman amongst many others. A fantastic opportunity (for those that can afford it) to secure for yourself some great contemporary pieces. Take a look at my picks from the sale below.
