  • Auction Results:

    – Yesterday’s evening sale of Modern & Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s Amsterdam generated excellent results. There was lively bidding both from the full saleroom and on the many telephones. Nine out of the ten top lots sold well above the high estimate.

    – New auction records were set for works by Jan Schoonhoven (tripling the previous record) and for the British artist Marlow Moss.

    – Bidding was competitive throughout, particularly for works that were fresh to the market.

    – The sale – estimated 1.3-1.9 million Euros – totalled €2.1 Euros, with 82% sold in value and 74% in lots.

  • Glad you stopped by my blog, because now I get to follow you on your exploits. I could literally shop for antiques all the time. It's like an easter egg hunt. So glad to know somewhere that facillitates antiquing jaunts. I have always wanted to do that, but have no clue how to ship the stuff back or where to go etc. And as a fellow Okie, you sure have had an interesting life thus far – so far from home, wherever that may be.
