Colin Gleadell reveals that Christie’s will make a Peter Doig painting the centerpiece of its Frieze sales this October in London:
Christie’s is set to announce probably the most valuable lot of the week with a painting by Peter Doig from his Concrete Cabin series, influenced by the architecture of Le Corbusier. Shown at the Tate in the artist’s 1994 Turner Prize exhibition, it caught the eye of the American collector who bought it and is now selling. The price at the Victoria Miro Gallery in 1994 would have been about £10,000. The estimate next month will be “in excess of £9 million”. The auction record for Doig is $26 million (£16.9 million) set in New York in May.
