Asian Art Week

New York, 14-21 March 2014


Christie's Leads Asia Week New York

Eight Sales Total $72 Million

Christie's concluded its Spring Asian Art Week with a combined total of $72,114,126 (HK$559,470,383 / ₤43,989,617 / € 52,643,312) achieved over four days of eight sales, March 18-21.

Jonathan Stone, Chairman and International Head of Asian Arts, said, "We had a historic week at Christie's, with sales of many private collections of Asian art from antiquity through to the modern world. An especial highlight of the week was the Sublime and the Beautiful: Asian Masterpieces of Devotion, a unique offering of iconic works of art from Asia's great religions. This sale, and indeed all the sales of the week, were beautifully presented and the global community of collectors responded with demonstrable enthusiasm. The continuing strength of the market for Asian was again confirmed. We were also honored to have facilitated the private sale of the ‘Min' Fanglei to a group of private Chinese collectors for donation to the Hunan Provincial Museum."
