New York - Christie’s concluded its Fall Asian Art Week with a combined total of $71,609,313 (HK$555,190,942/ ₤44,733,453/ €52,938,616) achieved over four days of eight sales, September 17-20.

Jonathan Stone, Chairman and International Head, Asian Art, said: "The consistently high sold-through rates were a feature of Christie’s Asian Art Week, notably the sale of Archaic Bronzes from a Distinguished Private Collection, which was 100%-sold, The Lizzadro Collection, the Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art sales, and also The Supratik Bose Collection, setting the platform for Christie's first sale in India on December 19. The re-launch and interest stimulated around Chinese paintings at Christie’s New York was well-received by the market. The strong results achieved this week have set the stage for Christie’s first auction in Mainland China on September 26, a great milestone in the company’s history."
