STRONG RESULT FOR CHRISTIE'S SALE OF OLD MASTERS
08 July 2016
Category : MARKET

The Old Master and British Evening Sale held by Christie's in London on July 7,2016  achieved £65,390,100 with a £44,882,500 bid on Peter Paul Rubens's Lot and his Daughters,


Henry Pettifer, International Director, Head of Old Master & British Paintings Christie's London said: “Following the
curated 250th anniversary Defining British Art sale we are delighted with the results of this Old Masters evening'sauction totalling £65,390,100 which gives us a combined running total of £105,373,775, the result of strong biddingfrom not only our traditional collectors for the category but also new clients from Asia and collectors of 20th Century art.We are especially pleased with the sale of Rubens's ‘Lot and his Daughters', for £44,882,500, the most expensive Old Master Painting ever sold by Christie's. The atmosphere in the saleroom was energetic as one of the most important paintings by Rubens to have remained in private hands sold after 14 minutes of bidding."

The sale achieved sell through rates of 93% by value and 77% by lot with good results, notably for Pieter Brueghel II's  ‘The Four Seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter' which sold over estimate to reach £6,466,500, Bellotto's pair of panoramas of the Grand Canal Venice sold for £3,554,500 and Jacob van Ruisdael's ‘View of Haarlem'which went for £1,538,500. 


Preceding the Old Master and British Painting Evening Sale, The Exceptional Sale totalled £5,681,250 
achieving sell through rates of 89% by value and 80% by lot. 


A world record was set for English Pottery with the sale of a Wedgwood black ‘First Day's Vase of £482 which more 
than doubled its high estimate. A world record was also set for a work by the Komai studio, a pair of Japanese inlaid iron vases and covers, which sold over estimate for £302,500 while a Meissen white model of a great bustard from Augustus the Strong's porcelain menagerie and a pair of ice pails from the Sèvres manufacture, ordered by Catherine the Great of Russia, both sold for £842,500.
