AFP totes up all the Asian art on offer starting today in New York City. The big buyers are expected to be repatriating Asians:
Christie’s leads Asian Art Week, which takes place in March and September, with 1,200 lots from India to Japan auctioning at an estimated collective price tag of between 46 and 65 million dollars. Rival auction house Sotheby’s follows suit with pre-sale estimates of 21.9 to 31.2 million dollars for 738 lots, while more than a dozen city galleries are hosting exhibitions and sales of their own.
