Hong Kong to New York | December 2020
Following the unprecedented success of the ONE auction and recent 20th Century sales, Christie’s continues its 2020 trend of innovation and globalisation, and presents 20th Century: Hong Kong to New York, a live-streaming relay sale linking two major sale hubs. From Renoir and Picasso to Warhol and Kusama, the wide-ranging auction, alongside the Modern and Contemporary Art Evening Sale, will lead a series of sales in both cities showcasing the best — and internationally recognised — of post-war and contemporary art, Impressionism, modernism and design.
We look forward to welcoming you to our viewings in New York beginning 21 November and in Hong Kong beginning 27 November. In the meantime, discover the highlights from each sale, view masterworks in exquisite detail and find out more about what’s to come.

Over a period of 50 years, Morton and Barbara Mandel assembled a collection of paintings and works on paper notable for charting developments in abstraction
According to specialist Stephen Jones, Natalie and Dr Marvin Gliedman collected ‘for the sheer love of it’ — including works by Noguchi, Calder and Diebenkorn
In the words of her friend, Interview magazine’s Bob Colacello, Barbara de Kwiatkowski was the 1970s It Girl —‘the embodiment of a decade’
Three-day October season of Impressionist, Modern and Post-War and Contemporary art sales achieves $387,242,500
The team who brought in the art for the New York Evening sale on October 6 explain why it will be an auction like nothing that has gone before

All of Christie’s auctions are fully accessible for online browsing and bidding, meaning you can easily place a bid from the comfort of your home through Christie’s LIVE™, or alternatively by telephone. In 2019, over half of all bids placed were online, and for live auctions, telephone bids made up 41 per cent of winning bids versus 18 per cent within the saleroom — so you’re in good company.
