The New York sales of Impressionist and Modern art were mostly tame affairs punctuated by moments of excitement as a few works significantly outperformed expectations. For the category, the entire week brought in $544m with an overall sell-through rate of 76% on 852 lots.
How does this compare to previous years? After a sharp pullback in 2016, the total across both houses has regained a substantial portion of the lost ground but not achieved levels comparable with the salad days of 2014 and 2015. That might not be a bad thing at all.
