Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 18 settembre 2021

London. Part I of the much anticipated Jasper Conran The Collection realised a total – to date – of £5,835,500 / €6,821,699 / $8,070,496, selling 93% by value and 92% by lot. The top lot of the sale was the portrait Anthony Maria Browne, 2nd Viscount Montagu, circa 1593 which exceeded its pre-sale estimate realising £742,500 (estimate: £400,000-600,000). Three new world auction records were set for works by Robert Peake, Thomas Spencer and Aert Schouman. The sale of 212 lots at Christie’s headquarters in London welcomed competitive bidding throughout and lasted over 6 hours. Part II, the online sale, remains open for bidding until 21 September. Benedict Winter, Christie’s Head of Sale comments: “This sale – which showed exceptional prices for old masters and English furniture – is a testament to Jasper’s unique vision and his country house obsession. Collected over the last thirty-years these pieces appealed to new collectors and enthusiasts alike. Christie’s is thrilled with the results of Part I and is pleased that Part II, the Online sale, presents many further opportunities for buyers.”
