Judd Tully is the master of the art market press corps and peerless at uncovering the deals but his “fair report” from the VIP Art Fair ends up with just two sales. One from the organizer and a second from one of the first dealers to sign up:
- James Cohan sold Fred Tomaselli‘s 2010 “Study for Night Music for Raptors” for $200,000
- David Zwirner, who sold Chris Ofili‘s polished 2006 bronze “Mary Magdalene (Infinity)” for $375,000 to an American collector.
