If you’ve been going through the Contemporary catalogues you might have come across two smaller works by Peter Doig that are also for sale as the major work, The Architect’s Home in the Ravine is up with a £14m low estimate. That work has a long market history that seems to coincide with Doig’s major price moves.
According to Colin Gleadell, these other works were snapped up at a Whitechapel charity sale in 2006:
Christie’s is also offering Doig, in this case two paintings belonging to the Canadian philanthropist Donald Sobey. These tell a slightly different story to the one above. Sobey bought them in 2006 for a combined £1.1 million and now they are estimated to bring upwards of £6.4 million.
