In line with the success of Christieʼs Impressionist & Modern Art
department in its Works on Paper sales across London, New York and Paris, next yearʼs auctions promise similar results. As the only auction house with sales dedicated to this category, in combination with the
strong expertise of its specialists and its global market reach,
Christieʼs yields a striking sell-through-rate that consistently outranks its competitors, particularly over the last 10 seasons.
Attracting masterpieces by Henri Matisse, Paul Cézanne and Pablo
Picasso, among many others, Christieʼs shines, most recently in 2015 with its spotlight on Picasso that evidenced a 91% sell-through; an 100% sell-through of the Triton Collection with 75.5% of the works selling above their estimates; a world record price for a work on paper with the sale of Kay Sageʼs The World of Why; and the sales of two Sophie Taeuber-Arp pieces that more than tripled their low estimates. As our specialists continue to gather works for inclusion, we would be pleased to speak with you about the benefits of consigning with Christieʼs. To learn more or to schedule a complimentary and confidential valuation of your work of art, please do not hesitate to contact us.
