In Artprice’s fortnightly series of auction rankings identifying the Art Market’s primary trends, this week’s Friday Top looks at Christie’s best results in the first quarter of 2019. The world’s most powerful art auctioneer (with a global turnover of nearly $5 billion from Fine Art in 2018) just keeps on generating extraordinary results. Two years […]

What records might we expect from the sale of the century? [24.04.2018]

Make no mistake… this has to be the sale of the century. Generously relayed by the media and masterfully orchestrated by Christie’s for months (world tour of the sale’s principal masterpieces with 14,000 visitors in in Hong Kong), the David and Peggy Rockefeller collection is expected to generate over $600 million. Promoted in no less […]

Top 10: French Artists [12.10.2012]

Once a fortnight Artprice draws up a ranking of theme-based auction results. This week our focus is on the ten best results over the past eight months for French artists of all generations.

May auction sales: the ascent continues… [26.04.2010]

The recovery in art prices is accelerating. At least, that is judging by the ambitious estimates announced by the major auction houses for their forthcoming Impressionist and Modern Art sales on 4 and 5 May 2010.

A wave of optimism at the London sales [08.02.2010]

Christie’s and Sotheby’s have won their gamble. The Impressionist & Modern Art sales on 2 and 3 February in London generated one global all-segment record and 29 results above £1m out of 87 lots offered. Christie’s managed to sell 87.5% of its lots for £61m (est. £48m-69m) plus the £8.5m from its special session devoted to surrealist art.

Impressionist and Modern sales in London – unabashed confidence! [25.01.2010]

Since the peak in January 2008, the price index of Impressionist art has contracted sharply: down 39.3%. But for Christie’s and Sotheby’s – judging by the high estimates in the catalogues for their upcoming London sales – the price deflation is now over.

New York’s Impressionist & Modern sales produce very mixed results [09.11.2009]

The two days of Impressionist & Modern auctions in New York saw the art market in full roller-coaster mode: after a very uninspiring evening at Christie’s that generated just $56.8m on 3 November 2009 (vs. $116.9m on 6 November 2008), Sotheby’s posted $102m more than its rival ($158.6m vs. $196.8m on 3 November 2008) the following day and several new records.

Neo-impressionism – the science of colour [11.01.2009]

The neo-impressionist masterpieces on loan from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan in New York can still be seen at the Palazzo Reale in Milan up to January 25 2009 in the exhibition Georges Pierre SEURAT, Paul SIGNAC and the Neo-impressionists.

Sotheby’s dominates the ‘impressionist and modern’ art sales in New York [15.05.2007]

Sotheby’s managed, as had been hoped, to outpace its competitor Christie’s in the impressionist and modern art sales held on 8 and 9 May 2007, obtaining results which gave it pole position in this round. However, the lead can’t yet be described as significant: $278,548,000 compared with $236,464,000 for sales under the hammer at Rockefeller Plaza.

Maximilien Luce – impressionist heritage [29.08.2006]

Maximilien LUCE was one of the major artists of the neo-impressionist period. He was associated with Camille PISSARRO, Paul SIGNAC and Georges Pierre SEURAT who was probably the key figure of the neo-impressionist movement. During his life, i.e. between the 1880s and his death in 1941, Luce produced a large volume of work that includes oil paintings, lithographs and numerous drawings.

His favourite themes – which happen to be the most sought-after on the market – are the leisures and labours of the ordinary people of his epoch, as well as landscapes of Paris, Normandy and Brittany. As an ardent anarchist, Luce was particularly keen on depicting the living conditions of his working-class contemporaries in realist and everyday situations.

Top prices for 4,614 artists since the start of 2005 [27.07.2005]

Prices of fine artworks continued on an exceptionally strong growth trend in the first half of 2005, and logically enough, the general increase in art prices of 4.1% also generated a sharp rise in the number of auction records.

Excellent results at the Impressionist and Modern Art sales organised by Sotheby’s and Christie’s of London [23.06.2005]

This season’s Impressionist and Modern Art sales held in London proved an outstanding success. Four new records were set on 20 June at Sotheby’s evening sale, which generated close to GBP 46 million for a total of 37 lots.

The Neo-Impressionist market [23.03.2005]

From 15 March to 10 July 2005, the Musée d’Orsay is showing 120 neo-impressionist paintings as part of its major exhibition entitled « Neo-Impressionism: from Seurat to Paul Klee ». The exhibition begins with works by Georges Seurat, the movement’s founder, and rounds off with works by artists who were influenced by the movement, such as Matisse, Derain, Kandinsky and Maurice de Vlaminck.
