Sotheby’s Dominates the May 2018 Auction Calendar

As the title suggests, Sotheby’s are featured in all three of Borro Blog’s May 2018 auction calendar highlights.

All the major asset classes are covered, with RM Sotheby’s heading to Monaco for their annual sale of blockbuster cars. This is followed by an Important Watches sale and an Impressionist & Modern Art Day sale.

RM Sotheby’s – Monaco 2018

May 12th

May 2018 Auction Calendar - 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione ‘Tour de France’

Monaco, the home of formula one racing, style and high-living will once again see large scale auction houses and classic car punters flood the city for ludicrously priced automobiles, coinciding with the iconic Monaco Grand Prix.

The top lot from RM Sotheby’s last Monaco auction in 2016 was the 1951 Ferrari 340, which sold for a hot €7,280,000 (£6,366,000). RM Sotheby’s will want to emulate 2016’s success with the 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione ‘Tour de France’ as the featured lot, hoping to fetch up to €9 million ($10,987,000).

Sotheby’s – Important Watches

May 13th

May 2018 Auction Calendar - Rolex Chronograph

Sotheby’s are tipping this auction to be a focus on ‘the very best of what vintage and modern horology has to offer’. The Important Watches auctions always live up to expectations, and this auction certainly won’t fall short.

Number 276 is the standout lot to watch; the exceptionally rare, stainless steel Rolex Chronograph. It comes complete with registers, bracelets and tropical subsidiary dials and is set to go for up to £400,000 ($558,000) when it goes under the hammer.

Sotheby’s – Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale

 May 15th

May 2018 Auction Calendar - Téte De Femme

Sotheby’s are returning to New York for their highly popular Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale. A host of highly renowned and influential artists such as Max Ernst, Marc Chagall and Francis Picabia are on offer.

However, it is Pablo Picasso who is stealing the limelight once again. Painted on December 5th 1964, the oil based ‘Téte De Femme’ was inspired by Picasso’s sixth and final significant muse, Jacqueline Roque. The work is set to sell for up to $3 million on May 15th.
