Artist's Resale Right ("Droit de Suite"). Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent.
Where Christie’s has provided a Minimum Price Guarantee
it is at risk of making a loss, which can be significant, if the
lot fails to sell. Christie’s therefore sometimes chooses to
share that risk with a third party. In such cases the third
party agrees prior to the auction to place an irrevocable
written bid on the lot. The third party is therefore
committed to bidding on the lot and, even if there are no
other bids, buying the lot at the level of the written bid
unless there are any higher bids. In doing so, the third party
takes on all or part of the risk of the lot not being sold. If
the lot is not sold, the third party may incur a loss.
