Sotheby’s is one of the oldest and largest auction houses in the world. Together with Christie’s, Sotheby’s auction holds about 90 percent of the global auction market for antiques, art and other unique goods. Initially, Sotheby’s was a closed club only for aristocrats. Currently, a visit to the auction house is available to everyone who is interested in this sphere.
For many years Christie remains the leader in the global art market. Christie’s auction annually arranges more than 350 tenders in 80 categories. This variety includes all areas of fine and applied art, jewelry, photography, collectibles, wine and other trends. By the way, it was in Christie’s in 2019 that the head of the bust of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun was sold for almost $ 6 million, despite all the protests of Egypt.
