"Christie’s is a name and place that speaks of extraordinary art, unparalleled service and expertise, as well as international glamour. Founded in 1766 by James Christie, Christie's has since conducted the greatest and most celebrated auctions through the centuries providing a popular showcase for the unique and the beautiful. Christie’s offers around 450 auctions annually in over 80 categories, including all areas of fine and decorative arts, jewellery, photographs, collectibles, wine, and more. Prices range from $200 to over $100 million. Christie's also has a long and successful history conducting private sales for its clients in all categories, with emphasis on Post-War & Contemporary, Impressionist & Modern, Old Masters and Jewellery."

"Christie’s has a global presence with 53 offices in 32 countries and 12 salerooms around the world including in London, New York, Paris, Geneva, Milan, Amsterdam, Dubai, Zürich, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Mumbai."

"Christie's sales of Indian and Southeast Asian art feature paintings, sculpture and textiles from an expansive geographical range that extends from ancient Gandhara, through the Himalayas, India, Sri Lanka and into Thailand and Indonesia. Many of these works of art emerge from Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain contexts, as well as traditions and cultures dating from the Indus Valley period (circa 3,300 B.C.) to the mid-1900s. Christie's holds two specialized sales of classical Indian and Southeast Asian Art a year in New York and have offered exceptional single-owner sales on a selective basis."
