Live-streamed from its London headquarters, the sale brought in £18.7 million on the hammer or £22.8 million with buyer's fees ($30.9 million) across 38 lots. That total landed solidly within the pre-sale estimate range of £14 million-£21 million. Led by Christie's global president Jussi Pylkknänen, the evening sale saw a sell-through rate of 86 percent. That was equivalent to last year's sale, which had a slightly higher total of £24.2 million made across 44 lots. Three lots were withdrawn before the sale, including Milanese painter Bernadino Luini's anticipated canvas, The Nativity, with the Journey to Egypt, estimated at £3 million-£5 million.
