The London Art Fair got mixed reviews on Artinfo.com with these reported sales:
- James Holland-Hibbert of the Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert gallery was less upbeat in his appraisal, however, rating the fair as more sluggish than the previous year — though he did manage to sell works at prices ranging from £50,000 ($80,000) to £100,000 ($160,000).
- At the Fine Art Society, meanwhile, a sculpture of a dog by French artist Henri Gaudier-Brzeska sold for £55,000 ($88,000).
- Contemporary galleries had a mixed week. Danielle Arnaud sold out of Tessa Farmer‘s quirky insect-sculptures (at £1,200 a pop, or about $1,900), but she felt that the fair was hampered by several participating galleries that were neither reputable Modern British sellers nor credible contemporary art galleries.
- Nettie Horn reported sales of works by Finish artistAnti Laitinen, priced between £3,000 ($4,800) and £4,500 ($7,200)
- Bearspace‘s Julia Alvarezsold more than 25 digital prints by Suzanne Moxhay, priced at just below £1,000 ($1,600).
