Sotheby's New York: Contemporary Art Day Auction Analysis

May 15, 2015

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 was a good day for Sotheby’s New York: Contemporary Art Day auction. I was a rather large auction with 398 lots put up on sale, out of which 311 lots were sold, making this auction a very successful. Although Alexadner Calder’s Red Eyed Dragon was sold for the largest amount of money, the biggest success was seen in the sale of lot 437, Cory Arcangel’s Photoshop Cs: 110 By 72 Inches, 300 Dpi, Rgb, Square Pixels, Default Gradient “Yellow, Blue, Red, Green”, Mouse Down Y=22700, X=10850, Mouse Up Y=30900, X=1900.

Sharing is Caring with Cory Arcangel

Cory Arcangel is a New York post-conceptual artist working in different medias, but keen on experimenting with digital media and technology. With his appropriational approach Arcangel is examining the relations with digital media and pop culture. At first site, the name of the artwork that caused the biggest rumble at Sotheby’s New York: Contemporary Art Day auction seems strange. Ironically, the name of Cory Arcangel’s artwork is actually a value of image that any Photoshop user can produce for himself. In other words, anybody can posses that very piece of art.

The Overview of Sotheby's New York: Contemporary Art Day Auction

As afore mentioned, out of 398 lots 311 were sold, making that a great 78.1 percent of sold lots. A great number of 131 of sold lots achieved prices over high estimates, or 42.1 percent, as oppose to 49 lots sold under low estimate, which is only 15.8 percent. Coincidentally, 131 lots were also sold in range of estimated value with the same 42.1 percent. The auction gathered $75754500 which is almost than a half million dollars more than the sum of high estimates for sold lots, making it a very- Very successful auction. The highest hammer price was seen in the sale of previously mentioned Calder’s work Red Eyed Dragon which was sold for $2400000. Average hammer price at this auction was $243584. Hammer price median was $120000 (this means that the same number of lots were sold for more than $120000 and for less than $120000). The difference between average hammer price and median was -50.7 percent, which means that almost the same number of lots were sold bellow this auction’s average price as above it.

Besides Calder’s and Arcangel’s artworks we will mention several more notable bids of Sotheby’s New York: Contemporary Art Day Auction: Jonas Wood’s two artworks – Black Still Life With Flower Pattern and Grandfather Clock, Basta Un Soffio from Roberta Silva, Richard Sera’s P&E VI, Claes Oldenburg’s Fried Egg in Pan. Some of the lots failed to match the expectations such as Willem De Kooning’s Woman VII and Dan Colen’s The Son Of A White Man.
