NEW YORK, N.Y.- Christie’s Latin American Evening Sale on November 15 achieved $15,333,750/ £9,660,263/ € 11,346,975 and was 83% sold by value and 76% sold by lot.

The Head of the Latin American Art department, comments: “Brazilian art shines tonight. Record prices were achieved for iconic works by Antonio Bandeira, Hércules Barsotti, José Pancetti, Alfredo Volpi, and Franz Weissmann, proving the tremendous interest in Brazilian art and for works that are fresh to the market and competitively estimated. Across the board, Mexican paintings and sculpture performed well, and we are thrilled with the auction record for Francisco Toledo’s masterpiece Vaca roja, who is in my view, the most important living Mexican painter. Worth noting is the great success of Fernando Botero, highlighted by the record for a sculpture with the monumental bronze Dancers, which was the top lot of the evening at $1.76 million. We look forward to the continuation of Day Sale, mañana.”
