Default Inside Christie's auction house gallery NYC

I visited Christie's this past Sunday. Great experience browsing around and viewing all of these historically significant items in a gallery setting. Well worth the visit .

Beautiful place. And it's a treat to walk around. It's like a museum and not a sales pitch to be heard. Walked in there last week on a sweltering day and the AC alone was worth the price of admission. (No, there is no price of admission.)

Exactly. More like walking around a museum than anything else.

I'll be stopping by there to pick up my winnings, though I assume things won't be displayed anymore. Was hoping to get there before the auction, but did not get a chance.

I took a walk over to Christie's, it's a very impressive exhibit; like a museum. I also got to sit and look thru the Horner Cabinets, which are amazing (more on that later).

LEDs produce very little UV, I'd think Christies would have converted some time ago.

i heard that if you question the lighting at christie's, you probably shouldn't be bidding with them in the first place.
