As a highlight of its New York Latin American sale, Phillips will spotlight contemporary Cuban art in a stand-alone selection of 27 lots.
In this week’s Latin American sales at Sotheby’s and Christie’s in New York, Cuban works turned in solid results—and a handful did better than that.
Cuban art got off to a strong start this evening with the first spring Latin American auction in New York at Phillips. Several works blew past their high estimates, including a record-setting piece by Amelia Peláez.
New York’s Latin American auctions kick off this Thursday, May 23, with the 4 p.m. sale at Phillips, followed by Sotheby’s on Tuesday, May 28 and Christie’s on Wednesday, May 29. Cuban art is well represented at all three auction houses. Here are a few of the lots we’ll be watching.
Following Monday’s strong showing for Cuban artists’ works in Sotheby’s Latin American auction, Cuban art continued to do well in Christie’s Latin American sale Tuesday.
