You're reading: Big art auctions coming up in London in February

Next week the world's two biggest auction houses, Christie's and Sotheby's, kick off a busy February schedule of London sales that will put the recent surge in art market prices to the test.

Following are the pre-sale estimates for the series of auctions covering impressionist, modern, post-war, contemporary and surreal works.

(Last year’s comparative figures from the corresponding 2010 auctions, where appropriate, include the buyer’s premium, while pre-sale estimates do not.)
