Many dealers reported brisk business at the event.

The fifth edition of Frieze Los Angeles is in the books. Amid concerns of a softening art market, many dealers were boasting of robust sales out at the Santa Monica Airport, which is very good news as the art world now turns its attention this week to the big London auctions and TEFAF in Maastricht, the Netherlands.

When Artnet’s Eileen Kinsella spoke with Hauser & Wirth president Marc Payot in the opening hours of the fair, he said that it was “the most successful first day at Frieze L.A. since the first year of the fair.” (That was back in 2019.) The Swiss mega gallery sold two of the top five priciest works we clocked at the fair: An Ed Clark painting for $950,000 and a $800,000 Frank Bowling.

What else sold? As usual, Artnet News Pro has an in-depth breakdown of the action, below. But first, a few caveats. While the majority of prices were reported in U.S. dollars, a few were in foreign currencies; they have been converted into greenbacks (and rounded). Also, these reports come from dealers, the fair itself, and sundry publicists; they are not exhaustive, and they contain only as much information as sources were willing to share. (Which leads to the peculiar phenomenon of some works being listed with a price range.)

With all of that said, enjoy the price transparency below, and see you soon at an art fair, an auction salesroom, or—why not?—a Sant Ambroeus.

A color photograph shows two almost photorealistic paintings—one of the Golden Gate Bridge on a smoggy day, the other of shirtless men posing at a concert. Two people stand in front of the Golden Gate painting.
