Highlights of the Mega March 2018 Auction Calendar

Following on from February’s car auction week in Paris, March promises another week of blockbuster classic cars heading to auction in Amelia Island. Aside from this, other standout auctions include Bonham’s jewellery sale and Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art day sale, featuring a Paul Gaughin work as the top lot.

Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale – 1st March

March 2018 Auction Dates

March 1st in London sees Sotheby’s offering an important selection from some of the most prominent figures in modern art. This includes an early drawing by Pablo Picasso, a watercolour by René Magritte, both of which have never been seen on the open market. However, top of the lot comes from Paul Gauguin’s ‘Tahitienne Assise’, featuring a pastel of a seated Tahitian woman. The work is expected to command up to £800,000 ($1,124,288) on the day.

 Gooding & Co’s Amelia Island Auction – 9th March

March 2018 Auction Dates

Since it’s originations at Amelia Island back in 2010, Gooding & Co’s prices realised have more than doubled, earning the credibility of the ‘premier east coast collector car auction’. The auction takes place on the Friday before the highly anticipated Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and features a line-up of highly desired classics. However, the top lot is a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 2.1 Turbo. It has an illustrious racing history, coming in 2nd at the 1974 24 Hours of Le Mans and is only one of four models built; both factors contributing to a hefty $8 million price estimate.

Bonhams Jewelry Sale – 14th March

March 2018 Auction Dates

This sale coming from the prestigious area of Knightsbridge in London and features high end luxury jewellery from aspirational brands such as Bulgari and Van Cleef & Arpels. The most expensive lot of the auction by some considerable distance is the ‘Diamond Single-Stone Ring’, with a ‘brilliant’ cut diamond weighing in at 5.49 carats. The estimated price falls between £25,000 ($35,134) and £35,000 ($49,187).
