The Chinese New Year of the Ox in 2021 is just around the corner. Global auction houses are here to bring you new year's wishes on ArtPro. Sotheby’s auction house in Asia has a cumulative total of 7.2 billion HKD and 17 auctions exceeding 10 million HKD in 2020. With a total transaction rate of 89% and the highest average hammer price for the past five years, we are creating the second-highest record in modern art auction history, leading the auction market for the fifth consecutive year.
Kevin Ching, CEO of Sotheby's Asia, sends Chinese New Year blessings to collectors around the world in Hong Kong:
Due to the epidemic situation, 2020 will be a difficult year, but our total auction turnover has exceeded 7 billion HKD, leading the auction market for the fifth consecutive year, which proves that our pursuit of beauty and art is not affected by the epidemic.
I hope that in the Year of the Ox, we will be able to defeat the epidemic and will be able to meet you again soon.
Again, I hope we will be
as powerful as a cow
wealthier and happier
and everything as you wish, in the Year of the Ox.
