From New York to Mumbai: Sotheby's $700+ Million Week of Global Auctions

NEW YORK, 16 November 2019 – Charles Stewart, Sotheby’s CEO, commented: “It was a thrill to witness first-hand the energy, enthusiasm and determination put forth by both collectors and Sotheby’s teams worldwide throughout the past two weeks. This series continues a strong fall season for the company, following outstanding recent results ranging from Frieze Week in London, to our exceptional Hong Kong series, the once-in-a-lifetime collection of Les Lalanne in Paris, and beyond. With more than $700 million in sales spanning Impressionist & Modern and Contemporary Art, magnificent jewelry and watches, and more, the market responded enthusiastically across collecting categories – with especially strong demand for works of the highest quality in all fields. These results demonstrate the resilience of the global market, and we will continue that momentum through our many sales yet to come in 2019.”
