NEW YORK, NY.- “Today’s sale was led by the phenomenal results for a selection of bronze sculptures by Diego Giacometti, which together sold for $6.8 million.” said Scott Niichel Co-Head, of Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale in New York. “The group was led by a rare octagonal table, which set a new world auction record for the artist when it sold for $3.8 million. This result also ranks among the highest prices ever achieved in our Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sales.”

Julian Dawes Co-Head of Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale in New York, commented: “Our results reaffirm market strength across the great breadth of material represented in our sales: from an iconic bronze cast of a dancer by Edgar Degas, to an early large-scale Impressionist canvas by Francis Picabia, to a 1955 painting by Pablo Picasso. We are pleased to see continued demand for top-quality works that are fresh to the market, and strong participation today by American private collectors in particular.”
