Estimate
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.

Catalogue Note

"Drawing is the discipline that has informed David Hockney’s approach to every medium – including painting. His early art education… was relatively traditional. Organised around the study of perspective and anatomy, it was based on the premise that drawing was the intellectual discipline upon which all art was founded. As it was taught, drawing entailed the acquisition of a visual language that was supposed to enable the artist to record his or her perceptions of the world as accurately as possible and, concurrently, the acquisition of a form of craftsmanship appropriate to such a requirement” (Paul Melia, ‘The Drawings of David Hockney’, in: Ulrich Luckhardt and Paul Melia, David Hockney: A Drawing Retrospective, London 1995, p. 15).
