The car-collecting world has enjoyed such growth during the past decade that rarely does a week pass without a major event for classic automobiles.

LONDON – JUNE 19, 2013 – Sotheby’s London Evening Sale of Impressionist & Modern Art totalled ¬£105,939,000, exceeding its pre-sale high estimate of ¬£74-104 million. Driven largely by the strength of the diverse offerings – fresh-to-the-market estate property, sculpture, and classic Impressionist works – the sale attracted global competition.

Monet’s 1908 view of Venice,¬†Le Palais Contarini, provided the highpoint of the evening, becoming the top selling work of the London summer season, when it sold in a tense three-way bidding battle for ¬£19,682,500/$30,828,700/‚ā¨22,998,940.

Moments earlier in the sale, a pristine example of a quintessential work by Piet Mondrian, Composition with Red, Yellow and Blue (1927) Рhis most favoured combination Рwas fiercely contested by five bidders.  The winning bid was cast by a telephone bidder and the work fetched a final sum of £9,266,500/$14,514,119 (est. £4.5-6.5) Рa price reflecting the rarity of seminal works by the Dutch artist on the market.

The auction was 81.7% sold by lot and was characterised by broad participation from bidders across 33 different countries on the telephones, in the saleroom and online. The sale saw a record number of participants from Asia in a London Impressionist sale.
