Michael Bass, Head of Department, Chinese Works of Art, New York, commented: “The Chinese works of art sales were led by Rivers of Color: Chinese Cloisonné Enamels from Private American Collections, which was 94% sold by lot and included the top selling Chinese work of art in New York Asia Week, the 15th – early 16th century deep bowl that realized US$2,629,000.  We saw enthusiastic and energetic  bidding in the Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art sale across every category - jade, archaic bronzes, furniture,  Buddhist gilt bronzes and Ming and Qing porcelain -  with the top lots selling to private Asian collectors from Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.”

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.
