Whether or not the market was buoyed even further by that price (it was a charity sale, after all), Tate Ward posted a number of high prices including breaking its own record for the 2019 screenprint triptych Thrower (Grey).

The firm, in London’s Brick Lane, sold a version of the signed edition of 300 back in October for £190,000. Here, a copy was estimated at £135,000- 165,000 and, after a lengthy competition, it was knocked down at £275,000, making the highest price of the 229-lot auction by some distance.
