The Irish Art market has witnessed tremendous growth in the last decade, and Christie’s sales have smashed auction records and achieved exceptional prices across three centuries of Irish Art. As the world’s leading auction house, Christie’s brings Irish Art to an international stage, and our global awareness and sensitivity to regional needs have consistently produced strong results.
2009 sales of Irish pictures to date have already exceeded £4,000,000. The first week of May, we held three extremely successful auctions over that drew in buyers from all over the world. We are particularly delighted to announce that the top lot, Count John McCormack by Sir William Orpen, was acquired by the National Gallery of Ireland.
Christie’s offers Irish paintings, watercolours and sculptures in a range of carefully curated sales across our London King Street and South Kensington auction rooms. Our Irish Art specialists possess a singular knowledge of the market, and can recommend the very best sales platform to reach the top buyers in each field.
