In 2017, Sotheby’s New York continues to hold the reputation as the market leader for Fine Classical Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy in North America. Our record-setting results are a testament to our expert ability to draw both established collectors and new bidders. From our March 2017 auction of an album of twelve leaves by Zhu Da (Bada Shanren) – realizing $3.13 million– through to our September 2016 auction, which achieved results in excess of $45 million, more than doubling the pre-sale estimate total of $17 million, Sotheby’s continues to deliver outstanding returns for consignors of Fine Classical Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy.
Dedicated sales of Fine Classical Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy are held twice a year during New York Asia Week in March and September. Sotheby’s highly-anticipated gatherings for top collectors celebrating Asia Week plays a crucial role in building excitement for the sale and in promoting consignments directly to an elite audience of potential buyers.
Our team of specialists from New York is inviting consignments for our fall September auction, and would be delighted to speak with you.
