Last week at Christie's auction of Works from the Collection of Michael Crichton at New York's Rockefeller Center, a new world record was achieved for artist Jasper Johns.
In total, Christie's Sale of Post-War and Contemporary Art realized over $231 million.
Earlier in the month, another record was set when a Picasso work from the Brody Collection sold at Christie's for $106.5 Million - the highest price paid at auction for a single work of art ever!
This is exciting news from our auction house partner, Christie's. Edward Dolman, CEO of Christie’s International, commented, "Great works continue to inspire and serve as a great store of value." The return of confidence in the art market often forecasts a strong market for estate properties as well. Buyers of great masterworks are typically interested in luxury real estate , and we look forward to helping these clients find new homes for their collections in the coming months.
