Daniel Grant has this interesting piece of news related to the photographer William Eggleston, there will be more large-scale prints struck for Frieze in October:
This was the first sale of these new pigment prints. “First time seen and sold,” Read said, adding that his gallery plans to exhibit other to-be-created large-scale pigment prints from older negatives by Eggleston this fall at Frieze London.
Moreover, the now disputed Christie’s sale was successful far beyond Christie’s expectations:
“I didn’t know how to estimate these prints,” he said, “so I just estimated them as though they were the old dye transfers. In the entire history of Christie’s, we had only sold 21 photographic prints over $100,000. In this sale, we sold 24 prints at $100,000 or more. That’s two-thirds of the sale.”
