It's been a big year for Peter Halley's market and it's still only April. The painter's Yellow Cell with Triple Conduit was sold in London for a record price in early March. That sale came as part of a spate of solid sales in the London Contemporary art auctions.
A few weeks later, in early April, a work estimated at £50k, Breakdown (above) sold for three times that price to make £150k with premium. All together, Halley's work has totaled $1.6m so far this year putting his auction volume near all of 2017 with much of the selling season left to come.
This kind of excitement isn't entirely new to Halley's market. And the timing of his previous market spikes is worth noting.
