At its Modern British art sale on March 1st Christie’s global president, Jussi Pylkkanen, remarked from the podium in King Street, London, how much he missed being up there, wielding his gavel, albeit just to phone and internet bids. In the previous nine months, he had only conducted four sales, two of which were shared with auctioneers in other locations, including the “ONE” sale in July which he had to share with Hong Kong, Paris and New York.
Today was only his fifth outing in ten months, presiding alternately with his colleague Arlene Blankers over an 82-lot-mix of Impressionist (mostly day sale material at other times), Modern, Surreal, Post-War and Contemporary art– all subsumed under Christie’s revived 20th Century art banner.
