On 16 May, the Macklowe Collection returned to Sotheby's in New York with a range of highlights, amounting to the most valuable single-owner auction ever held.

Four artworks in particular caught Ocula Advisor Simon Fisher's eye, including Cy Twombly's Synopsis of a Battle (1968), selling for 15,261,500 USD—a wax crayon on canvas coated in oil-based house paint resembling a chalk board.

Robert Ryman's textured white abstract painting Swift (2002) was another favourite, selling for 10,665,500 USD, along with Early Morning Happiness (2001) by Agnes Martin, which achieved more than double its high estimate at 9,861,200 USD.

Also included was Gerhard Richter's Seestück (Seascape) (1975), which sold for 30,198,500 USD.
