Time to Sell: Art Market Recap with Peter Loughrey

November 19, 2014

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

The second week of November is an insatiable spectacle that the art world waits for all year. As major auction houses go head-to-head and notable collectors battle for top-tier works, we ask ourselves, “There’s no way prices can go higher, can they?”—well, last week, they did just that. Christie’s and Sotheby’s both saw record-breaking prices and high sell through rates. In an analysis of these impressive results, Peter Loughrey, Director of Modern Art & Design at LAMA, shares his valuable advice on what to sell now, his perspective on the current state of the market, and thoughts on French modern art, Ed Ruscha and the “Cool School” California Artists, and Andy Warhol.
