LONDON.- The Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Sale realised a total of £16,158,250, over two times the low estimate, selling 93% by lot and 94% by value, and was led by Yayoi Kusama's My Life (2014), which more than doubled its pre-sale estimate to sell for £1,222,500. The sale was highlighted by the rising stars of contemporary art, opening with spirited bidding, which delivered above estimate results for Hurvin Anderson's Girl in a Tree (record in the medium for a work on paper: £387,500), Amoako Boafo's Portrait (£181,250), Chantalle Joffe's Night Self-Portrait in a Red Dress (record: £75,000), Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Red Twins II (£150,000), Claire Tabouret's Les Diadèmes (Rose et Bleu) (£112,500), Salman Toor's Untitled (Woman) (£237,500) and Caroline Walker's Dividing Lines (record: £81,250). Ewa Juszkiewicz's Grove (2014) sold for more than 12 times its high estimate, realising a new world auction record for the artist (£437,500).

Artists, gallerists and collectors generously donated works to benefit the children's charity Rays of Sunshine, achieving a total to date of £2,036,000. The group was led by Flora Yukhnovich's Puits d'amour (Wells of Love), with 18 phone bidders competing for 10 minutes to chase the final price to £910,500 against an estimate of £20,000-30,000, the second highest price in the Day Sale. France-Lise McGurn's Goya Eyes sold for a record £87,500, more than five times its high estimate. Notable results were also achieved for Tony Cragg's Senders (£125,000), Yoshitomo Nara's TOKIO TOKIO (£250,000), and Caroline Walker's Study for Laundry Sorting, Morning, December (£81,250). A further 15 lots to benefit Rays of Sunshine are offered in our online only sale First Open: Post-War and Contemporary Art, which is open for bidding until 19 October.

Additional highlights include Aboudia's Untitled (£125,000), André Butzer's Ganze Mandeln waschen für Vogelfutter (record: £193,750), George Condo's Untitled (£250,000), Yves Saint Laurent's Love (record in the medium for a work on paper: £168,500), Harland Miller's Murder - We've All Done It (£325,000), Takashi Murakami’s Thinking Matter (Red) (£598,500), Arnoldo Pomodoro's Sfera (£300,000), Gerhard Richter's Abstraktes Bild (£450,000), Cinga Samson's Bestow: to confer or present (an honour, right, or gift) 4 (£85,000), Chiharu Shiota's State of Being (Book) (£250,000), Salman Toor's Nina Q and Nina X with Pearls (£300,000), and Andy Warhol's Karen Kain (£437,500).
