Colin Gleadell was busy last week gathering sales at Frieze and PAD:
- London’s Alison Jacques sold a variety of works by Ryan Mosley, Ana Mendieta, Catherine Yass, Ryan McGinley, and Klara Kristalova in the £10,000 to £20,000 range.
- Anthony Wilkinson also sold works by most of his artists, notably taking £55,000 for a large painting by Turner Prize contender George Shaw, and £95,000 for an as yet incomplete triptych based on Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights by the rarely exhibited Mark Alexander.
- Nyoman Masriadi: Paul Kasmin Gallery […] sold a large canvas for $250,000.
- Simon Dickinson: a slashed red canvas by Lucio Fontana was sold for around three million euros
- Galerie Vedovi from Brussels, which devoted its stand to the shiny enamel and fibreglass shaped reliefs of octogenarian Agostino Bonalumi, virtually sold out, with prices ranging from 60,000 to 250,000 euros.
