During the exhibition, there will be estimated prices under and over £300, as well as artworks priced over £1000.

This purchase is only available at the live exhibition in the Spark on 23 March up until 15:00. The BIN option will enable buyers to purchase any Lot immediately, as opposed to using the bidding process.
