Sotheby’s is set to dominate the headline art auctions throughout the July 2018 Auction Calendar. Both the Old Masters Evening sale and Pre-Raphaelite British Impressionist art sale are in the highly anticipated schedule.
The world’s biggest classic motor racing festival is also set to return. With it comes Silverstone’s classic sale, which should ignite the classic car world and give indication on how the market will pan out into the latter half of the year.
Sotheby’s Old Masters Evening Sale – July 4th
London, United Kingdom
London Art Week always results in a busy and exciting time for the London art market at the start of July. Arguably the most important and influential auction of the week will take place at Sotheby’s Bond Street auction house, the Old Masters Evening Sale.
Leading the way will be Joseph Mallord William Turner’s stunning portrait, depicting Walton Bridges in one of his highly important series of views of the River Thames. The portrait is expected to fetch up to $5 million when it goes under the hammer on July 4th.
London, United Kingdom
An exciting array of paintings, drawings and watercolours are up for grabs at this vastly important midsummer art auction. The sale will offer examples of not only the pre-Raphaelites but also Classical Revival and British Impressionist pieces.
The sale will be led by lot 12 – John William Waterhouse’s enchanting masterpiece, ‘The Siren’. Find out all of the enthralling history and provenance behind this piece here.
Silverstone Classic Sale 2018 – July 21st
The Silverstone Classic Sale is upon us again and it has some absolute gems up for auction. With plenty of rare, provenant Ferraris, Porsches and Jaguars in the mix, it is hard to pick a real standout contender for the featured lot.
The 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster leads the way in terms of price by a considerable margin, with an estimated hammer price of between $700,000 and $800,000. The car comes with fully documented restoration by a ‘Who’s Who’ of the UK’s leading 300SL specialists and is sure to cause some serious excitement among the classic car enthusiasts at Silverstone.
