The beginning of March has been strong all across the globe. The Armory Show and its satellite events attracted the art world's elite to New York City and the European galleries opened their doors to very strong shows. While some of us might still be art-fair hungover from Madrid and New York, others prepare for Art Basel Hong Kong next week. Sotheby's and Christie's also played their part with some strong sales beating the estimates for both emerging and established artists. Aujourd'hui has made a short selection of the works and their results.
