This, likely, won't be a high volume week, in terms of prices that will be achieved, as the highest estimated value of any lots from this three auctions is not exceeding $600,000. But, there will be lot of contemporary items, and we are bringing you a lot of images, so you could see as much as possible before auctions start. Chronologically, first auction of the week is Under the influence that will take place on April 13, at Phillips in London. Then, on April 14 and April 15, at Christie's in Amsterdam, the Post-War and Contemporary auction is about to happen.
