SOTHEBY'S MARCH 2014 ASIA WEEK AUCTIONS TOTAL $56.1 MILLION
Henry Howard-Sneyd, Sotheby's Vice Chairman, Asian Art and the lead auctioneer, commented: "Asia Week New York is now firmly established as a major event in the global art world calendar. Following Sotheby's best ever year for Asian Art auctions in New York in 2013, our week of sales totaled $56,145,252 a solid increase on last March. There was consistent bidding throughout the five sales with a strong sell through rate and an overall sold-by-value rate of 80% driven by collectors from throughout Asia, the US, and Europe doggedly pursuing the rarest objects often to prices several times the high estimates. In addition to the auctions we once again staged the Shuimo / Water Ink selling exhibition which doubled in size from last year and was again enthusiastically received."
