[intro]Peter Blake is Best-Selling Artist of Fair[/intro]
Colin Gleadell reports on some sales coming out of the London Art Fair last weekend:
As the London Art Fair closed on Sunday afternoon, dealers were mostly upbeat about the level of sales that had taken place. Scottish picture specialist Duncan Miller sold more than 30 paintings, mostly by young contemporary artists, while Stephen Paisnel counted a dozen sales of works by established post-war British artists including a large Alan Davie painting from the early Sixties priced at £120,000. Richard Green was also happy to have made as many sales from his stock of Mary Fedden, Edward Seago, Ken Howard et al. Best-selling artist of the fair, however, was Peter Blake, who was showing hand-coloured screenprints and diamond-dust portraits of Andy Warhol through print publisher Paul Stolper. Nearly 50 of his prints were sold with prices between £1,000 and £2,000 each.
