LONDON.- Frank Auerbach’s J.Y.M. Seated in the Studio VI was one of the highlights of Bonhams’ Post-War & Contemporary Art sale today (Thursday 22 October) in London, achieving £687,062. The work – which dated from 1988 and was personally selected by Auerbach to be included in his landmark Tate Britain retrospective in 2015 – had an estimate of £380,000 - 450,000.

The top lot of the sale was Oh My God, 2006 by Banksy, which sold for £855,062. The unique work was first exhibited at Banksy's landmark Barely Legal exhibition in Los Angeles in 2006.

The sale made a total of £5,188,063 with 92% sold by value.

Ralph Taylor, Bonhams Global Head of Post-War and Contemporary Art, commented: “We are incredibly pleased with the results of this sale. There were several stand-out lots, including J.Y.M. Seated in the Studio VI, which was one of the finest works by Frank Auerbach to come to the market in recent years. It is also fantastic to see the continued success for works by Banksy at Bonhams.
