Chinese antiques prove popular at Christie's Asian Art Week.
The New York auction was a fitting end to Christie's Asian Art Week with 82% of all lots sold
Last week's Asian Art Week at Christie's New York auction house proved yet again, that the unique Chinese art market is going from the strength to strength.
Their Asian art week had proved a resounding success with a total of $70.75m made across six different sales. Arguably the highlight of the week was the sale of "Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art including Property from the Arthur M. Sackler Collections" which took place over two days on September 16-17.
In total, this auction raised £22.3m ($34.8m) with 82% of the 542 lots on offer selling.
