This article describes the success of Italian art at Sotheby’s this month – the auction house sold 39.5 million pounds worth of art at its evening auction on October 13. 

Another big ticket work by the late Lucian Freud “Boy’s Head” sold that night for 3.2 million pounds. Of 105 lots on offer at that evening’s Italian and Contemporary Art sales, 23 went unsold.
