Indeed, of all the Impressionists, Monet continues to be the most bankable. As well as the Waterlilies there are four other Monet oils coming up: one more at Christie's and three at Sotheby's. All are earlier works. The best at Sotheby's – Marée basse au Petites Dalles - also carries the most enticing estimate: $3-5 million. From the collection of Mamdouha and Elmer Holmes Bobst, who acquired the work in the late 1960s, it is a beautifully rugged painting of the Normandy coastline painted in 1884; it thoroughly deserves to outshine its price expectations. But it is the second of the Monets at Christie's which is the most picture postcard perfect: a view of boats on the Seine titled Au Petit-Gennevilliers. Painted in the summer of 1874, immediately after the term Impressionism had first been coined, it is estimated at $8 - 12 million, and comes from descendants of the esteemed collector Henry Osborne Havemeyer, who bought the painting in 1901. More 'blue chip' it would be hard to find. Yet, despite the painting's clear credentials, in recent years these earlier Impressionist works haven't necessarily galvanised the market.

The collision of fairs and sales is all about timing. Today's collectors are invariably by definition cash rich, but in the modern world ever more time poor. By squeezing all the auctions into a single week the auction houses can carve out a much longer public viewing for the Impressionist and Modern and Contemporary categories - the best part of 12 days, so that the pre-sale viewings become in effect quasi-fairs themselves. And with viewing coinciding with the three actual fairs, clients are ever more likely to be able to schedule the time to see the works that they want to at first hand.

By having everything on view simultaneously too the week encourages cross-over buying. Collectors may, for example, be looking to buy a Picasso in an Impressionist & Modern sale, but are also tempted to look at a Gerhard Richter or a Cy Twombly. And with the auction viewing periods no longer a week apart the schedule benefits those who come from farther afield, such as from Europe or Asia, who will not now need to spend such an extended time away in order to view or attend sales in both categories. The flipside, however, is that there is a huge bottleneck of material being brought to market in an even shorter period of time, which makes assimilation of all that's on offer something of a challenge. This, of course, is one good reason of many why Fine Art Brokers are here: to help make sense of all that is on offer, and provide professional advice and support when considering bidding or buying.
