September in New York is of course, back to school, Fashion Week, the fall season of Broadway, Chelsea gallery openings and art auctions, among other things. Philips‘ Under the Influence is a catch all name to sell some art. Not as blue chip as Christie’s and Sotheby’s but nonetheless a player, it’s always fun to see Phillips catalogue and estimates (and then check back to see what sold for what and what failed to sell at all.) I’ve cherry-picked my favorite figurative works from the latest hodgepodge collection of well-known (and lesser-known) names to make my own little curated exhibit that only exists here (…and The Wow Report) Although you won't see the uncensored Wolfgang Tillman's "Spitting on Dick" there.) You can see lots of other non-figurative (and non-pornographic) work, all 257 lots, here. What else do you have to do on a Sunday? OK, well then, get going.
