Art Market and Art Auction analysis.
RawFacts is a weekly barometer of what is going on in the auction market, as well as presenting other interesting figures and facts on the art market.
RawFacts Week 11, 2017 looks at the recent strength of the Chinese and Asian sales in New York and the London Post-War & Contemporary day auctions at Christie’s, Sotheby’s & Phillips in March.
The New York sales of Chinese and Asian Paintings, Calligraphy and Works of Art dominated last week’s sales. This was the case both by value and number. Out of a total value of $401.8m achieved at auction, 88.2% was made up by the Chinese and Asian sales in New York, compared to $130.4m for the same week last year
