So, the fall auction season has started. How's the market? The results are mixed. Christie’s New York “First Open” auction on Sept. 21, 2011, totaled $9,920,375, with 74 percent of lots selling, a bit of a drop from the March sale of the same name (which brought in a record $10.3 million). The top lot, a vibrant Gerhard Richter Abstraktes Bild (1997), nearly doubled its $400,000 presale estimate to sell for $794,500.
