Sotheby's Highest Ever Total for an Auction of Contemporary Art in Europe

Our July 2015 Contemporary Art Evening Auction realised £130.4m ($204.7m / €183.9m), Sotheby’s highest-ever total for a sale of Contemporary Art in Europe. Warhol’s only hand-painted one-dollar bill painting sold for £20.9 million, the highest price for any work sold in London this week. Two newly discovered self-portraits by Francis Bacon led a strong British offering, including works by other School of London artists such as Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach, David Hockney and R. B. Kitaj.
