Now Accepting Contemporary Art Consignments in Hong Kong

The first half of the year saw Contemporary art auctions at Sotheby’s Hong Kong realise an impressive HK$502 million /US$ 64.4 million. These auctions attracted global participation from close to 20 countries with Asia in particular demonstrating its purchasing power.

The April sales witnessed the debut of Western contemporary art in Sotheby’s Hong Kong’s Evening Sale. The headline lot, Andy Warhol’s Mao, sold for HK$ 98.5 million / US$ 12.6 million – the highest auction price ever paid for a work of Western art in Asia. The Day Sales performed superbly, achieving overall results 28% above the high estimate and a sell-through rate of 91%, while the two specially curated auctions both achieved 100% sold, white-glove status and set new auction records for four artists. The upcoming October Day Sale will include Western Contemporary works for the first time.
