New York Auctions
Sotheby’s New York evening sale of Impressionist and Modern Art marked the start of this year’s big spring auctions. Artworks by Cézanne, Braque, and Léger beat expectations, with the sale totaling an impressive US$230 million. The top lot last night was Paul Cezanne's 1889 work, Les Pommes, which, estimated at US$25 to $35 million, was then sold to a telephone bidder for US$37 million.
Rapper LL Cool J, Donald L. Bryant Jr., and a few members of the Nahmad family (David Nahmad was absent) were among the crowd.
