A great article from the National providing instructions on how to register at auctions, as well as giving some useful bidding advice. The article also provides some information on upcoming Dubai exhibitions, and some very interesting past auction results. Offers great tips for any first time bidders!
“Dubai’s next sale is on Tuesday, when Christie’s will auction a broad range of modern and contemporary Arab, Iranian and Turkish art in the Godolphin ballroom at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel, and it will be equally accessible.
Although the top lot might be out of reach to the average beginner – Fishing, a 1957 painting by the Egyptian modern artist Abdul Hadi El-Gazzar, is expected to fetch between $250,000 and $350,000 – with prices ranging from $2,000 to $3,000 expected to be achieved for an untitled fibreglass sculpture by the Iranian contemporary artist Nastaran Safaei, there is plenty to tempt the first-time buyer.” (Quote from article below)
