Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 6 ottobre 2017

Audrey HepburnLondon – Christie’s auctions, Part I and Part II, of the personal property of Audrey Hepburn captivated the imagination of a global audience, realising an overall total of £6,053,875/ $8,100,085/ €6,883,255. Comprising 473 lots, the flagship live auction at Christie’s headquarters in London (27 September) and the online sale (19 September to 4 October) attracted registered bidders from a total of 50 countries across 6 continents. Both sales sparked competitive bidding from new and existing clients; in the saleroom, on the telephones, via absentee bids and Christie’s LIVETM in Part I; and via the easily accessible online sale format in Part II. With the success of the Audrey Hepburn online sale, this September saw the highest number of new registrants to Christie’s online since the sales were launched in 2011 and confirms that this platform continues to be the best recruiter of new clients to Christie’s.
Adrian Hume-Sayer, Head of Sale and Director of Private Collections commented: “We are indebted to Audrey Hepburn’s two sons for entrusting Christie’s with this very special collection. Audrey Hepburn is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest icons in the history of both film and fashion. The incredible enthusiasm with which her collection was received bears testament to the enduring strength of her appeal – from Hong Kong to Hollywood the pre-sale exhibitions drew crowds wherever they went, with the London pre-sale events alone drawing in excess of 12,000 visitors. The fervour continued with vigour through both the live and online auctions, with the marathon 10 hour live sale running until midnight. The success of the sales – which saw thousands of her personal possessions across almost 500 lots all find homes – show the immense continued affection for perhaps the greatest British actress the world has seen. Part III of the collection will be offered online in 2018, details will follow in due course.”
