In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Judd Tully, editor at large of Art + Auction, joins us to recap last week’s contemporary auctions in New York. First, Judd discusses the biggest story of the week, the Taubman Estate sale at Sotheby’s, and reveals what he heard in advance of the auction as well as how the property performed relative to its pre-sale guarantee. Then, he describes the state of the Impressionist and Modern art market in light of both Sotheby’s and Christie’s decisions to feature mixed Impressionist and Modern and Post-War and Contemporary auctions this season. Lastly, Judd shares the take away from this sales season in terms of what collectors are willing to pay for and what they aren’t willing to pay for at the moment in this market.
