Invitation to Consign: Modern & Contemporary Arab, Iranian and Turkish Art

The new sale format of Part I and Part II introduced at Christie’s Dubai in October 2011 proved to be yet another great success in the last October 2012 Dubai sales. With an exhilarating selling rate of 96% for Part I and 88% for Part II, setting five new world auction records in the former and 29 in the latter, Christie’s Dubai realised a combined total of $5.9 Million.

Following the success of our 2012 sales, we are currently seeking consignments for our next sales of Modern and Contemporary Arab, Iranian and Turkish Art at Christie’s Dubai on 16th and 17th April 2013. In addition to rare works by leading modern Arab and Iranian artists, we are gathering cutting edge pieces by internationally established contemporary Arab, Iranian and Turkish artists.

If you are interested in consigning to our April 2013 sale, please do not hesitate to contact the department directly by phone or by sending images and information via email to the specialists.

Consignment Deadline: 8 February 2013
