But even if you’re not in the market for a Warhol, Crocodile Birkin Bag or Rolex Paul Newman, a robust auction market has made for an exciting year to spectate from the sidelines. In fact, much like the luxury housing market, Christie’s enjoyed many record-breaking sales during the first half of 2022. Total auction house sales were up 18 percent vs. the first half of 2021 to $4.1 billion, and Christie’s accounted for seven of the twelve most expensive works sold during this time.
Estimated at over $1 billion, Visionary: The Paul G. Allen Collection will be the largest and most exceptional art auction in history. Proceeds will benefit various charities.
