Sotheby’s has announced its Frieze line up for this year and we see that they’re getting into the Jacob Kassay game too:
Sotheby’s forthcoming Contemporary Art Evening Auction on Thursday, October 13, 2011, which coincides with London’s Frieze Art Fair, will be led by an exceptionally strong section of British Art that is highlighted by Lucian Freud’s Boy’s Head of 1952. The British Art section also includes important pieces by Peter Doig, Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff, Marc Quinn and Glenn Brown. The auction will also feature works by established greats such as Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Miquel Barceló and Sigmar Polke as well as an offering of artworks by younger artists including Jacob Kassay. The 47-lot auction is estimated at in excess of £19 million.
