London Contemporary Art Auctions


Estimated far below similar works sold just one year ago, Richard Prince's Country Nurse is scheduled for auction June 30th, during Christie's Postwar+ Contemporary Art Evening Sale in London.

The big three auction houses are gearing up for their annual summer Contemporary Art sales in London. Day and evening sales kick of with Sotheby’s on June 25th and will be followed by Phillips de Pury on June 29th and Christie’s on the 30th and July 1.

With an estimate of £1.5-2 million at Christie’s Postwar + Contemporary Art Evening Sale on June 30, Richard Prince’s Country Nurse (pictured above) is telling of the increasingly conservative methods auctioneers are using to minimize risk in an already diminished market. One year ago a similar piece from the Nurse series was estimated at £4-6 million and sold for £4,241,250 at Sotheby’s July 1 London Contemporary Evening Sale.
