Commentaires : « Les bons résultats de la vente d’Art d’Asie démontrent que les collectionneurs du monde entier ont répondu positivement à la sélection d’œuvres de qualité et de belles provenances à l’image d’une rare verseuse zoomorphe en bronze (lot 286) vendue €505.000, plus de trois fois son estimation basse et d’une statue de Syamatara en bois laqué (lot 371) vendue €505.000 dépassant, elle aussi, largement son estimation. Retenons également que les enchérisseurs étaient présents dans la salle mais aussi sur Christie’s Live avec 16% des œuvres achetées sur le net et une sous-enchère de €160.000 pour une théière en jade blanc (lot 153) qui a finalement été vendue à une galerie asiatique €361.000, multipliant par vingt son estimation initiale » a déclaré Mathilde Courteault, directrice du département.

About Christie’s

Founded in 1766, Christie’s is a world-leading art and luxury business. Renowned and trusted for its expert live and online auctions, as well as its bespoke private sales, Christie’s offers a full portfolio of global services to its clients, including art appraisal, art financing, international real estate and education. Christie’s has a physical presence in 46 countries, throughout the Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Asia Pacific, with flagship international sales hubs in New York, London, Hong Kong, Paris and Geneva. It also is the only international auction house authorized to hold sales in mainland China (Shanghai).

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. 

Christie’s is dedicated to advancing responsible culture throughout its business and communities worldwide, including achieving sustainability through net zero carbon emissions by 2030, and actively using its platform in the art world to amplify under-represented voices and support positive change.
