Christie’s is pleased to announce our 23 October auction of Modern Art which will take place during Paris’s celebrated FIAC art fair.
In 2014 our inaugural October evening sale produced a sold total of €14.5m and delivered strong sell-through rates. Our strategy of timing our sale when the international market is present in Paris resulted in a very busy pre-sale exhibition, which continued with a strong presence of collectors in the saleroom.
In the first half of 2015, Christie’s Paris has continued the positive trend in this category with three sales totaling over €24 million and with an average sell-through rate of 94.5% by lot.
As leaders in the field in Paris, Christie’s are currently inviting consignments to the upcoming auction which will feature important works by the leading artists of the early 20th century.
Please do not hesitate to contact Fanny Saulay for a free and confidential valuation of your collection or to discuss the market.
