What Sold at Art Basel in Basel
June 18, 2017

Dealers were quick to dispel the notion that this week’s sales were frothy, citing steady economic performance in the world’s major economies, especially those from which many of the biggest collectors hail, such as the U.S., Western Europe, and China. In fact, they almost seemed expected, given what dealers brought to Art Basel: the works in David Zwirner’s booth were worth nearly $100 million, Mnuchin Gallery’s roughly $65 million. One doesn’t bother insuring and shipping over that many treasures without a strong indication that collectors will be in a receptive mood.

Political art makes a splash at Art Basel
June 16, 2017

New York gallery David Zwirner sold a 1954 Alberto Burri work for more than US$10 million, a 1986 Sigmar Polke painting for almost US$9 million, and a few Marlene Dumas' works-on-paper and paintings ranging from US$150,000 to US$3 million. New York's Mnuchin Gallery sold a Mark Bradford canvas for US$5.5 million; Bradford is currently showing at the US Pavilion in Venice Biennale.

The ’80s Are Back, Baby! Art Basel Ushers a New Decade Into the Blue-Chip Pantheon
June 15, 2017

Has the 1980s generation muscled its big-shouldered way into the top tiers of the art market? At Art Basel this week, works no more than 35 years old are among the most expensive at the fair, and artists who were recently dismissed as overhyped or out of fashion—like Julian Schnabel and Peter Halley—are being shown proudly and prominently. “The ‘80s are back big time,” says the art advisor Wendy Cromwell.

AO ON-SITE – BASEL: ART BASEL AT MESSE BASEL THROUGH JUNE 18TH, 2017
June 14, 2017

This rush of guests caused an equally strong rush to buy, with many galleries reporting remarkable early figures.  At Mnuchin Gallery, Mark Bradford’s Smear sold quickly, garnering a price of $5.5 million, capitalizing on the artist’s impressive Venice Biennale pavilion this summer, while Pace Gallery sold an impressive range of historical works by Robert Rauschenberg and Sol LeWitt for $1 million and $750,000, respectively.

At Art Basel, Galleries Bet Big on Booming Basquiat Market as Sales Flow During VIP Preview
June 13, 2017

Mnuchin Gallery came with a booth anchored by a $12 million Warhol gun painting, and while that had yet to sell by mid-afternoon, a work by Mark Bradford (also riding a Biennale bump after representing the United States in Venice) sold for $5.5 million, a higher-end mark for the artist at a fair.
