Paul Allen's $1.62 billion sale saw strong results for Edward Hopper, David Hockney and Georgia O'Keeffe. Now Christie's is bringing seven additional works by the three artists to the May sales in New York.
The London sales were down by 30% from the previous year. The pullback surprised no one. The numbers may be lower at Sotheby's, Christie's and Phillips but the sales still emphasize artists with emerging markets.
Christie's will offer 16 works from Si Newhouse Jr's art collection, including works by Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Willem de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, Lee Bontecou and Jasper Johns, in single-owner evening sale in New York in May 2023
