The 250th anniversary of Christie’s has been an historic year, commemorated with a series of special sales, exhibitions and events at our salesrooms across the globe. Celebrations of this landmark anniversary have included Defining British Art — An Evening Sale (30 June) and Loan Exhibition (17 June to 15 July) that both explored the legacy of four centuries of British art, and special curated sales to mark 30 Years in Asia and 10 Years in Dubai. A new book on 250 of the most remarkable works of art to have been offered in our auctions — Going Once: 250 years of Culture, Taste and Collecting at Christie’s (Phaidon) — is out now.
