AUCTION POWER -
Alex Rotter

 

Since becoming head of contemporary art at Sotheby’s New York in 2008, the Vienna-born Rotter has accelerated the department’s private sales, which doubled last year; he also oversees the 15-month-old S2 gallery that presents curated private selling shows. Even more critically, Rotter is the quintessential business-getter, especially for coveted Warhols and Basquiats. In May, for example, Rotter took the winning telephone bid for the Pop star’s Ten-Foot Flowers, 1967–68, which fetched $10,722,500.
