Christie's Announces Sales Results for the First Half of 2016

Christie's announced sales results for the first half of 2016. The company announced sales of £2.1 billion ($3 billion), for the first half of 2016, compared to £2.9 billion ($4.5 billion) for the same period in 2015. The results are underpinned by a strong, diverse global buyer base, growth in online and the volume of lots sold for under £1 million. Sales volumes are down by 29%, mainly due to the impact of a drop in supply of works of art above £20 million at auction, with 29 lots selling over £5 million versus 47 lots in same period in 2015.
