Inspired by Eugène Delacroix’s 1834 Orientalist, #PabloPicasso Women of Algiers will establish a new auction world record at Christie's NY if sells for more than $142.4 million.

The current all time record is the Francis Bacon triptych sold for $142.3 at Christie's in 11/2013.

No matter what the painting sells for, the owner of the Picasso,  purchased in November 1997 from the Victor and Sally Ganz Collection +Christie's for $31.9M, is a most likely candidate  to make at least $100 million when title is transferred.

+Sotheby's appoints #Drake   rainmaker for Private Sales division. In 3rd quarter 2014, Sotheby's Private Sales trading volume declined to $153.4 million, -61% vs. $390.4 million achieved in year ago period.

Besides lower private sale commissions, the loss of 2 skilled  executives has significantly affected affected Sotheby's trading volume. Stephane Connery, former Worldwide Head of Private Sales, resigned in 2012 and Tobias Meyer, Global Head of Contemporary Art, left Sotheby's in 2013.

Neither gentleman was replaced with outside personnel; just this week, Sotheby's raised more questions with the appointment CEO #TadSmith , a 49 year old +Madison Square Garden CEO  with NO prior art experience.

Counterfeiter of numerous #MarkTobey Fakes indicted.  

Recall conversation with late #PaulCummings , art historian and editor of Mark Tobey Catalogue Raisonne, who cited the Mark Tobey marketplace is plagued with Fakes, and like most great artists, essential to trace provenance and if you can't, be certain you know where to find that Art Seller in the case of recourse.

In other words, abridged return policies for Fine Art purchases, especially those seen at +artnet +Paddle8 +Amazon.com +Auctionata +eBay is akin to russian roulette.

+Sotheby's Board of Directors has  blonde moment overlooking necessity ART WORLD credentials for #TadSmith  CEO hire. 

Insightful command of Sotheby's and complex auction business impossible in weeks or months, especially when Tad Smith has not even collected Art. Assessing Sotheby's personnel and implementing meaningful strategic changes more difficult given Smith's lack of Art  credentials.

+eBay & +Sotheby's, business partners for second time, launch new partnership without marketing synchronization.

+eBay proudly announces association with +Sotheby's launching 4/1/15.
http://ebay.com/sothebys/

However, while +Sotheby's announces +eBay association on homepage, there is ZERO +eBay mention +Sotheby's on either 4/1/15 auction, the NY Sale and Sale of Photography.

The oversight is more confusing as it isn't clear if you can attend the auction live at 8pm, 4/1/15 at Sotheby's and/or view on eBay.
http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/2014/the-new-york-sale-n09215.html

The overt marketing inconsistency is particularly odd since the partnership was announced seven months ago,  What is clear, especially at eBay is the considerable 25% buyer's premium which will be an obvious impediment to the majority of eBay buyers who are prefer frill free bargains and prices.

First announced last July, the initiative will bring scores of Sotheby’s less expensive items — which range from about $1,000 to $50,000 — to eBay’s customers, a crowd that both companies hope will be eager to purchase works of art online.
