As the big spring sales of Impressionist, modern and contemporary art approach in early May, Christie’s New York
tuned up with a small, 82-lot sale of 19th-century European art on Apr. 23, 2012. Though this sector of the market has slowed down in recent years, at this auction all top ten lots exceeded their high estimates. The overall total was $6,277,000 (with premium), with 57 lots selling, or 71 percent.
