Selling Ancient Art in New York


This week saw two major sales of ‘ancient art’ at Sotheby’s and Christie’s in New York. Combined with the two sales earlier in the summer, some $26.3 million worth of ancient art has been auctioned in 2015. This is roughly equivalent to 2014 with $26.8 million. There has been a steady decrease since 2010 ($133.8 million).
