Located in Amsterdam-Zuid, the cultural heart of the city, Christie’s offices and saleroom are housed in a building that exemplifies the Amsterdam style of the 1920s. Christie’s opened its saleroom in 1973 in Amsterdam. The premises, once home to the Maritime Museum, saw various historic sales such as the Liechtenstein collection, the Anton Philips collection,the Anton Dreesmann Collection, The Property of the Scheringa Museum of Realist Art and The Piet and Ida Sanders Collection.
In 1986, Christie’s Amsterdam sold the world-famous Nanking Cargo. The trove of more than 150,000 pieces of 18th century Chinese porcelain and gold ingots fetched for more than 17 million euro’s – still a record for any auction conducted in the Netherlands.
Today, Christie’s Amsterdam is the foremost Northern European saleroom for Old Masters, 19th Century Art and Impressionists, Modern Art and Post-War and Contemporary Art.
Arp arrived at the forms in his sculptures in a gradual manner, taking his inspiration from the shapes suggested to him by the natural world, as well as from his own body of existing work.

Announcing Death in America: Selections from the Zadig & Voltaire Collection. The grouping of over 40 works from the collection assembled by Thierry Gillier will be sold across the Post-War and Contemporary Sales this May in New York with part of the proceeds from this sale donated to the @leonardodicaprio Foundation and @oceana US Shark Conservation Program. "Gillier’s understanding of history, and his sharp eye for quality is distinct in these works. The collection comprises a powerful sense of rebellion, from the artists who are known for defying traditional notions of fine art, to the collector who has built an empire pushing the boundaries of high fashion." @loicgouzer
Maurizio Cattelan (B. 1960), Untitled, resin, paint, human hair, clothing, packing, tissue, wood and screws. Executed in 2007. Estimate: $1,000,000-1,500,000.
