NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s leads the Asian Art market, totaling $161,142,063 (£99,908,079/€148,250,697/HKD 1,250,462,408/ CNY 1,000,692,211), the highest total for Asian Art Week in New York, achieved in ten sales from March 15 to 21.

“This was an historic week for Christie's and for Asian art. The overwhelming response to The Ellsworth Collection, one of the greatest private collections ever assembled, was felt from the international tour to the exhibitions and in the saleroom. It was an honor to work with the Estate of Robert Hatfield Ellsworth who entrusted us with the sale, and the result of the collection so far is not only a testament to Mr. Ellsworth’s unparalleled eye and diverse interests in art, but also the global team effort at Christie's. For the last six months, the Christie's team has worked tirelessly to research, catalogue, and present this extraordinary group of objects. The reaction from our international clients has been unparalleled in its enthusiasm,” said Marc Porter, Chairman and President of Christie's Americas.
