Next Tuesday, in London, Christies are holding an auction of Twentieth-Century British Art. Looking at the range of pre-sale estimates, this is another chance for starting or building worthwhile collections. The highest estimate is only $35,000, and most are in the $1,000 to $5,000 range. The catalog is stretched with some undistinguished drawings, I think, but there’s some good material there too. I particularly like Felix Kelly’s “Beach Scene with Abandoned Tram“:
The estimate for this whimsical beauty is just $5,300 to $8,800. I’ll check into the results next week.
