Tracey Emin (CBE) is one of the most ground-breaking, controversial and exciting artists of the modern British era. Emin produces artworks in multiple mediums including her signature neon tubing, but also applique, sculpture, painting, photography and drawing. Cutting her artistic teeth in the legendary Young British Artists clique in the 1980s, alongside such luminaries as Damien Hirst, her early work was often supported by iconic advertising mogul Charles Saatchi.
The piece that catapulted Emin into public consciousness was her Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963–1995, a mass-produced tent appliqued inside with the names of everyone Emin had ever slept with up until that point. Many misconstrued the exhibit’s title as a euphemism for sexual activity, when in fact she used the term slept in a more literal sense. It was rumoured to have sold for around £300,000 before it was destroyed in a warehouse fire in 2004.
Emin’s most famous piece is undoubtedly My Bed. This controversial installation consisted of her own unmade bed, in which she had slept and had sexual intercourse over several days of depressed drinking. Features included bloody underwear, condom wrappers and cigarette ends. Somewhat predictably, it caused a media storm upon its first showing in 1998. More recently, its value was confirmed at £2.5 million when it was sold in 2014.
What makes Emin’s art & paintings valuable for a loan purpose?
Well, all publicity is good publicity goes the common idiom – and this is certainly true for Tracey Emin. The sexually charged nature of her works, and her actions during media appearances, certainly awarded her enviable column inches in the newspapers during the 1990s. However, there is something intensely honest about her most famous pieces that go beyond the tabloid furore and resonate with many people.
Will I require provenance if I pawn my Tracey Emin art & paintings?
All the usual documentation, such as certificates of authentication, is important to us and the presence (or lack) of these items may affect the valuation we can give you, whether we deal Tracy Emin art or other famous artworks.
