Art News Going Once Book

Art News Going Once Book

Over the last 250 years, Christie’s, the world’s leading fine art auction business, has connected art with collectors across the world. I'm fortunate enough to be one such artist to have gone under the Christie's hammer and many of my paintings can be found in international corporate and private collections.

To coincide with their 250th anniversary "Going Once: 250 Years of Culture, Taste and Collecting at Christie’s" was published on 24 October 2016 and is sure to be of interest to art lovers everywhere. It's a fascinating visual read that vividly brings to life the shifts in trends, fashion and design over the centuries, and showcases 250 of Christie's most outstanding objects.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Founded in London in 1766, Christie's is one of the most important auction houses in the world. During its history, Christie's has sold masterpieces by artists such as Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Vincent van Gogh, often at record-breaking prices; and, away from the world of art, the personal possessions of such well-known figures as Napoleon Bonaparte, Marilyn Monroe, Yves Saint Laurent, and Princess Diana.

From furniture to works of fine and decorative art, vintage cars to clothing and jewelry, the items sold at its auctions hold a mirror to our history and reflect our culture at large. Going Once vividly brings to life the shifts in aesthetic trends, fashion, and design over the centuries, showcasing 250 of the most outstanding objects in its storied history - including some of the very first pieces sold at the auction house.


"Lots to be proud of... The most extraordinary artworks and outstanding objects ever sold at Christie's." —Christie's Magazine

"Recounts discoveries such as a 3,000-year-old Assyrian frieze that sold for £7 million, having been found in the tuck shop of a Dorset school; record-breaking prices [...] and oddities that have crossed Christie's block, including a wooly-mammoth skeleton and James Bond author Ian Fleming's gold typewriter." —Vanity Fair (On Art)
