On Wednesday in London, the Mimi Foundation hosted a gala fundraiser to raise money for Myriam Ullens’ cancer charity. Over £1,350,000 was raised thanks to an auction of artwork donated by some of the worlds’ most prominent contemporary artists. Long time friend of Ullens, Simon de Pury, effectively conducted the auction.

Some works of note included a piece by Sterling Ruby made specifically for the event which went for £185,000, Yan Pei-Ming’s Portrait of HRH The Prince of Wales which reached £302,500, and a pupil portrait by Marc Quinn that went for £194,500.
