Commentaires : « Avec près de €800.000, 87% par lot et 94% en valeur,  ces très bons chiffres sont le résultat d’un vif engouement de la part des acheteurs français et internationaux pour les collections et les ventes monographiques mis en place par Christie’s à Paris. Pour la première fois sur le marché, les collectionneurs, présents dans la salle, au téléphone et sur Internet, ont pu enchérir sur un ensemble de 23 œuvres des artistes Pierre&Gilles, permettant notamment d’obtenir un prix record pour une de leurs œuvres aux enchères ; Le Petit Jardinier – Didier a ainsi atteint €157.000/$ 224.000 (lot 2). » a déclaré Matthieu Humery, directeur de la vente.

Christie’s auctions span more than 80 art and luxury categories, at price points ranging from $200 to over $100 million. In recent years, Christie’s has achieved the world record price for an artwork at auction (Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvador Mundi, 2017), for a single collection sale (the Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller, 2018), and for a work by a living artist (Jeff Koons’ Rabbit, 2019).

Christie’s Private Sales offers a seamless service for buying and selling art, jewellery and watches outside of the auction calendar, working exclusively with Christie’s specialists at a client’s individual pace.

Recent innovations at Christie’s include the groundbreaking sale of the first NFT for a digital work of art ever offered at a major auction house (Beeple’s Everydays, March 2021), with the unprecedented acceptance of cryptocurrency as a means of payment. As an industry leader in digital innovation, Christie’s also continues to pioneer new technologies that are redefining the business of art, including the creation of viewing and bidding experiences that integrate augmented reality, global livestreaming, buy-now channels, and hybrid sales formats.
