Emily Sundblad

by Elisabeth Kley

A canny young artist with a gambler’s sense of humor, Emily Sundblad made her auction debut last week with the very painting she used for the announcement for her first solo show in New York, "Que Bárbara!," which opened at Algus Greenspon in the far West Village on May 9, 2011. The painting, consigned to Philips de Pury for its day sale of contemporary art on May 13, 2011, sold for $37,500 (with the auction house premium), more than double its $15,000 presale high estimate. It was Sunblad’s first appearance at auction, and certainly a promising start. As Sundblad says in the press release for her show at Algus Greenspon, “let’s cut to the chase.”
