Sotheby’s Evening Sales of Impressionist & Modern Art and Actual Size at Sotheby’s London totalled a combined £148,877,000 / $187,719,009 (est. £129.9-170.5m). The total for the Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale represented an increase of 24% over the equivalent auction last year.

First to go under the hammer was Murnau – Landschaft mit grünem Haus from 1909, which sold for £21 million / $26.4 million / €23.9 million.

Burkina architect Diebedo Francis Kere unveils illustrious United Kingdom pavilion

Burkina Faso’s Diebedo Francis Kere on Tuesday unveiled his temporary pavilion in London’s Hyde Park, becoming the first African architect to undertake the prestigious assignment given to a world-famous architect every year. Kere’s Serpentine Pavilion comprises an indigo-blue structure with a latticed canopy, which is inspired by a tree in his hometown of Gando that serves as a central meeting point. “In my village, during the hot day, everyone is gathering under the tree, you have the mothers, the fathers, the elders then the kids,” he said. “I grew up listening to stories in my village and the blue, here indigo blue, a natural colour, is so important to the culture.” The expansive roof, supported by a central steel framework, mimics a tree’s canopy, allowing air to circulate while offering shelter against the London weather, he added. “I wanted the visitor to come and discover this huge canopy and then go through
