The recent Contemporary Art auction at Sotheby's, held on 28 June 2016, affirmed that London remains a vibrant, global hub for the art market, despite the previous week's Brexit vote. Of particular note, Jenny Saville's monumental painting, Shift, set a new record for the artist; it sold to Liu Yiqian's Long Museum for £6.8 million.
