Sarah Krueger, Phillips’ Head of Sale, Photographs, said, “This season, we continue to see demand for late 20th and early 21st century works, with new records having been set for both Hannah Wilke and The Starn Twins. Diane Arbus’ Child with a toy hand grenade in Central Park and Robert Mapplethorpe’s Lisa Marie both performed exceptionally well, more than doubling their low estimates. We were delighted to see a strong showing of international participation via phone and online channels, and we look forward to our next Photographs sale, which will take place in London on the 3rd of November.”
