NEW YORK, NY.- As collectors and art lovers turn increasingly to digital access as a primary means to learn, enjoy, browse and buy artwork and luxury items, Christie’s has refreshed its online offerings across numerous collecting categories and launched several new initiatives.

A new, enhanced Private Sales site offers online viewings and immediate purchase options for collectors of fine and decorative arts, jewelry and watches. Rich, new Content will be launched to engage, inspire and educate art loving audience; and a refreshed calendar of online sales provides collectors with continued opportunities to bid and buy, with more sales to be added in the weeks ahead.

Matthew Rubinger, Deputy Chief Marketing Officer, commented: “We recognize that art and objects are an important source of enrichment and enjoyment for so many, and our focus these last weeks has been on refreshing our digital offerings in several key areas. Our goal is to ensure our doors remain open from a digital standpoint, so that our audiences across the world can continue to engage with us, whether that means learning more about their favorite collecting category, seeing a work of art in a virtual viewing room, or bidding on an item through our trusted online sale platform.”
