LONDON.- The Photographs sale realised £1,402, 525 and was 77% sold by value at Christie’s London. The top lot was Satiric Dancer, 1926, by André Kertész which realised £228,500. Yuka Yamaji, Head of Photographs Department, London said: “The 23 previously unseen prints by André Kertész were led by Satiric Dancer, 1926, which realised £228,500; seven of the top ten lots are by the artist. We are thrilled with the success of the 14 avant-garde works from the Springefeld Collection which realised a total of £238,075, far exceeding the pre-sale estimate for the group. This section reflects the continuing demand for fresh works of excellent quality and provenance and resulted in four new world auction records for the artist, for works by Walter Peterhans, Hugo Erfurth, Hein Gorny and Willy Zielke. We are very pleased that the new, innovative section of 27 Japanese post-war and contemporary works created widespread excitement, totalling £230,475, with Smash-up, 1969 by Daido Moriyama setting a world auction record for the artist, positioned 8th on the top ten. A further five world auction records were set by Kikuji Kawada, Keizo Kitajima, Asako Narahashi, Mika Ninagawa and Rinko Kawauchi. The strength of the market for Japanese photo-books is notable, with two world auction records set by Chizu – The Map, 1965 by Kawada and Farewell Photography, 1972 by Moriyama, with competitive bidding for the complete set of Provoke. We look forward to our next Photograph sales at King Street and South Kensington in November.”
