Meridian auction has an $8.7M buyer
- by admin
The Meridian Auction House has a buyer, who will bid on a lot of the world’s most expensive artwork from the late-1800s to the 1920s.
The buyer is a New Zealand-based company called Meridian Auction.
Meridian Auction’s website lists an approximate price of $8,7M for the piece.
The buyer is also a New Zealander, but we will not reveal his identity for privacy reasons.
The piece, which is called The Sling, was first sold in 2016 by the artist Thomas P. Roper for $12.7 million, according to an online listing from a New York auction house.
It was sold in a private collection in New York in 2018 for $3.7 billion.
The artist’s son Thomas Roper said the Sling will be part of the permanent collection of his father’s estate.
“This piece is a classic piece of art that has never been sold before and I can say with absolute certainty that it is not only an amazing piece of work, but one of the most important pieces of art of all time,” Roper told the New York Times in 2018.
“It is the best piece of Art History that I have ever seen.”
The piece, known as The Sledge, is a rare piece of artwork.
It sold for $2.7m in New Orleans in January 2018.
The art sold for a record $6.5 million in May 2018.
It has a price tag of $12 million, the Times reported.
In the 1920, the Sledge was one of a handful of pieces of artwork bought by Roper, who had been working on his own solo work.
The Sock was also a major part of his career.
Roker’s mother, Annie Roper Roberts, died in 1922.
Thomas Ropers son, Joseph, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1962 for The Sink.
Thomas Roper bought the Sock in 2017, and in January of this year, it sold for an estimated $5.5m.
The auction house has also listed the piece in a public sale for $7.3m.
