NEW YORK CITY — Christie’s concluded its Asian Art Week with a combined total of $58,591,063 achieved over four days of eight sales, September 13-16. The auctions saw deep bidding levels from Greater China across all categories, especially for the Indian, Himalayan and Southeast Asian art sale. Works of extreme rarity and importance were exemplified by the “Oil Spot” Jian tea bowl from the Linyushanren collection, which sold for $11,701,000, setting a world auction record for a Song dynasty tea bowl and the top lot of Asian art in New York.
The dedicated sale, Collected in America: Chinese Ceramics from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, generated huge international interest and was 100 percent sold, the result of exceptional works with excellent provenance.
