NEW YORK.- Christie's led the global market in Asian Art with $36 million achieved over four days of sales, March 17 through 20. Theow H. Tow, Deputy Chairman, Christies Americas and Asia, said: We are pleased with the continued strength of Christies Asian Art Week which presented exceptional works of art to an international audience. The market for Asian Art has been deepening and expanding over the past several years and Christies is thrilled to be leading the way. Our dedicated and talented specialists put together well-edited sales with important works that achieved strong results. In particular, the sale of Fine Chinese Art from the Arthur M. Sackler Collections was a triumphant success. The results achieved honor Dr. Arthur M. Sacklers connoisseurship and his visionary aesthetic. Spirited bidders in the room competed against determined buyers on the telephone, and on Christies LIVE. We were also pleased to see numerous works of art at the mid-level range performed within or exceeded their estimates across the board. Our spring Asian Art Week achieved nearly $36.4 million, solidifying Christie's position as the worlds market leader in Asian Art sales.
