Sotheby’s has a particularly strong track record selling works by Czech artists, following our market defining success in selling Czech modernist art from the Hascoe collection, which achieved a sale total of just over £11 million. Since then, we have regularly offered exceptional Czech paintings at auction. Most recently Emil Filla’s Seated Woman achieved a new world record auction price of £729,000 against an estimate of £280,00 – 350,000.
