Taking the cue from every major business widening their digital presence amidst a complete lockdown, international auction house Christie’s has also expanded its global calendar of online-only sales in months of April and May.
The auction will be open for bidding on a weekly basis, with each timed auction ranging from 14 to 21 days. The bidding will be facilitated by Christie’s teams in New York, London, Paris and Hong Kong. Among these sales launching globally in April and May are Andy Warhol: Better Days, a fundraising auction to help provide emergency relief to artists throughout the US and HANDPICKED: 100 Works Selected by the Saatchi Gallery. Better Days features a different but ever-important side of Warhol’s body of work which beautifully captures the everyday scenes that surrounded him.
The categories included in these sales are 20th Century art, Asian Art, Decorative Arts, Photography, Science and Natural
History, as well as Jewels, Watches, and Handbags. Each online sale will be accessible from a computer, tablet or mobile phone 24 hours a day, and participating bidders can receive sale updates via email, text or the free Christie’s app. Such online auctions are known to routinely produce exceptional results for the auction house and reach a broad global audience. In 2019, Christies.com attracted over 13.3 million visitors worldwide and 41% of new
buyers came in through online sales.
