My fabulous up close photo of the John Singer Sargent painting which sold for a record $4,309,000.00 US Dollars
I was thrilled to attend the viewing of the auctions for her jewels in 2012, and the Clark Family Estate this past weekend. I have been a long time fan of Christie's and am now thrilled to announce I am now press for the famous auction house. I will be having a more in-depth look at some of the fabulous items that were for sale with the Clark Family Estate, I always love to show you real photos of items as I think it just makes it much more cool ! The auction which took place yesterday, June 18th, took 7 hours! Please be sure to follow the blog for a more detailed post shortly. I was never a history buff in high school, but places like Christie's makes you want to learn more about the past. I find it much more interesting when I can actually look at items with my own eyes, and take in all it's glory.
One more item has yet to be sold:
On Friday June 6, Christie’s is pleased to announce bidding is now open for the Kreutzer Stradivarius violin from the Estate of Huguette M. Clark, the American copper mining heiress. This magnificent instrument, estimated at US $7.5 – 10 million, is being offered via a sealed bid auction timed to run in parallel to Christie’s saleroom auction of An American Dynasty: The Clark Family Treasures.
