Sotheby’s is proud to report a record year in the company’s history at the forefront of art market transformation, driven by strength and depth of demand and an influx of new collectors, and powered by rapid expansion of offerings and platforms. New sale formats and categories attracted a wider audience of participants (a record number of bidders joined in Sotheby’s sales, with 44% of them new to Sotheby’s) and a rise in quality works coming to the market is meeting strong demand from new and established collectors. From the $92.2 million sale of Sandro Botticelli's Portrait of a Young Man to the record-breaking Macklowe Collection 2021 at Sotheby's was a year to remember.
