La vendita si è conclusa con un totale di 8,165,663 $ con 462 lotti offerti su 756 offerti. Il lotto che ha raggiunto il prezzo più alto è stato il numero 224: una litografia a colori dell’artista norvegese Edvar Munch, “Madonna”, stimata 600,000-800,000 e aggiudicata a $ 650,500.Tudor Davies, Head of Prints, comments: “We are pleased with the results of the two-day Prints and Multiples sale, where quality and condition proved key factors in determining price.  Highlights of the sale came from the modern section, with our cover lot Madonna by Munch and Picasso’s Femme au Tambourin each achieving strong results in today’s market.  We were particularly pleased that Matisse’s Marie-Josee en robe jaune, consigned on behalf of the estate of Pierre-Nöel, achieved a world auction record. Demand for Post-War and Contemporary Prints remained steady with sustained bidding by US Trade and private buyers.”
