Daniel Merriweather: Live from the Artists Den

Filled with landmark works by Andy Warhol and Mark Rothko, the famed auction house Sotheby's in New York City set the stage for a private performance by new R&B singer-songwriter Daniel Merriweather, celebrating the spring opening of its Contemporary Art Auction.


Australian singer-songwriter Daniel Merriweather has been garnering much acclaim with his debut album, Love and War, already an enormous hit in the UK, where he is nominated for the 2010 Brit Award for Best International Breakthrough Act. The 27-year-old Melbourne native's music pulses with '60s soul keyboards and horns, warm textures of acoustic and electric guitar, and cinematic string arrangements, all anchored by Merriweather's combustible vocals. At his first Los Angeles show Daily Variety declared "there was no doubt that a new star was born."

Love and War


In 1744 Londoner Samuel Baker, founder of Sotheby's auction house, held the first-ever sale under his own name: a personal library that sold for a few hundred pounds. Well over two centuries later, Sotheby's sold a single book for more than 8 million pounds. In the last century, the original London company has expanded from book auctions to cover all areas of the fine and decorative arts. This great expansion means that Sotheby's is not just one of the oldest fine art auctioneers in the world, but also now the largest. There are more than 100 Sotheby's offices around the globe.
