Irrevocable Bids
Lots with this symbol indicate that a party has provided Sotheby’s with an irrevocable bid on the lot that will be executed during the sale at a value that ensures that the lot will sell. The irrevocable bidder, who may bid in excess of the irrevocable bid, will be compensated based on the final hammer price in the event he or she is not the successful bidder or may receive a fixed fee in the event he or she is the successful bidder. If the irrevocable bidder is the successful bidder, the fixed fee (if applicable) for providing the irrevocable bid may be netted against the irrevocable bidder’s obligation to pay the full purchase price for the lot and the purchase price reported for the lot shall be net of such fixed fee. If the irrevocable bid is not secured until after the printing of the auction catalogue, a pre-lot announcement will be made indicating that there is an irrevocable bid on the lot. If the irrevocable bidder is advising anyone with respect to the lot, Sotheby’s requires the irrevocable bidder to disclose his or her financial interest in the lot. If an agent is advising you or bidding on your behalf with respect to a lot identified as being subject to an irrevocable bid, you should request that the agent disclose whether or not he or she has a financial interest in the lot.
Guaranteed Property

Catalogue Note

“I think of these works [Terrazzo Paintings] as long-term relationship paintings. Making them means embarking on a long-term process; it involves entering into a relationship with fast and slow ways of working. Early in the process, I have to act very quickly as the spray dries in just a few seconds, which means that this first part of the process involves very rigorous work that is closer to physical exertion than it is to painting. If I make a mistake, I literally have to jump in and scrub the canvas to make it right before it dries. Then there’s this incredibly slow part that happens when dealing with decisions made by Nature; to make the works dry, frost, fade in the sunlight, and age the way I’d like them to. It can easily take months before I apply another brushstroke or a spill that is yet again a decision made in a split second.” Fredrik Værslev
