Artmarketspace posted exceptional sell through rates of 115% by value and 82% by lot, at its full lockdown art auction on August 23rd.
Despite having no public viewing this auction delivered excellent results for very happy vendors. Six previously unseen works by contemporary artist John Nixon, who sadly passed away lastweek, sold for multiple estimates and every work found a new home.
Factors that helped the overall result:
· Artmarketspace provides videos online so that buyers can see genuine imagery of the works they were going to bid on.
· It was a curated auction with fresh works to the market, all from private collections.
· Sensible estimates and reserves.
· Artmarketspace’s automated click and collect system, allowing for contactless delivery door-to-door at unbeatable delivery prices averaging $50 per work nationally.
