LATIN AMERICAN ART TRIUMPHS AT AUCTION

The NY spring season has concluded with the major auctions of Contemporary and Modern art. While the sales have not been a disaster, most lots have sold either below or close to the low estimate, with some last-minute withdrawals. One year ago, the May sales already marked a clear recalibration of prices. Over the past 12 months, the market has continued its slowdown, and this week's sales have confirmed the trend. It is not a brusque fall or a crash, but a slow-motion downward spiral in prices, with very few but exciting surprises.
