Cindy Sherman, Untitled #278 $242,500 (including premium).

NEW YORK, NY.- Phillips de Pury & Company’s Photographs sale at 450 Park Avenue, comprising 260 lots, sold 94.5% by value and 90.4% by lot totaling $5,802,250 (including premium).

Phillips de Pury & Company finalizes the New York Photographs week with outstanding results that confirm the Photographs Department status as a leader in the photographs market across the classic and contemporary spectrums.

The inaugural Photographs Auction Day was launched with an insightful Photographs Aficionado Class, followed by Chief Auctioneer Simon de Pury’s masterful conducting of a most dynamic auction that was hugely successful in attracting over 400 clients, and enhanced by the opportunity to receive an individual digital portrait by contemporary fashion and entertainment photographer Sophie Elgort. Collectively, the series of events generated a strong and unmistakable buzz across the photographs world.

“I am thrilled with the results of our inaugural Photography Sale on Park Avenue, which allowed us to achieve an excellent total and to break many records.” Simon de Pury, Chairman and Chief Auctioneer, Phillips de Pury & Company.

“We are tremendously excited with the results that reflect our dedication to offer the best in classic and contemporary photographs. We broke a great number of world auction records for emerging and established photographers, which speak of sellers’ confidence in offering top-quality works as well as buyers’ confidence in aggressively pursuing them. Today’s results are a testament to our commitment to the field of photographs.” Vanessa Kramer, Worldwide Director, Photographs.
