NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --Sotheby's (NYSE: BID) Asia Week sale series concluded this weekend in New York, with 750+ works spanning centuries of important Asian art sold across five auctions for a total of $33.9 million. Thus far in 2018, Sotheby's New York sales of Asian Art have reached $113.4 million – an impressive 42.5% increase over the same period last year. Below is a look at the magnificent works and collections that drove these results.

Christina Prescott-Walker, Division Director of Asian Art at Sotheby's New York, commented: "The market for Asian art, and Chinese art in particular, has remained extremely strong in New York throughout 2018. Sotheby's has had the honor of presenting works from a number of prestigious private collections this year, including those of the Chew Family, Jeffrey P. Stamen, Gerson and Judith Leiber, Jingyatang, Tang Hung and Fung Bi-Che, and Stephen Junkunc, III. Fresh-to the-market works emerging from such storied collections continue to be sought after by buyers internationally, and in particular those from mainland China – many of whom travel to New York to participate in our sales here. We look forward to our upcoming sales of Asian art that will highlight our autumn auction series in Hong Kong, and to our New York Asia Week sales in March 2019."
