Contemporary Art Evening Sale | 17 November 2016 | New York



While many people across the globe are familiar with the Sotheby’s name, it is the brand’s heritage that often remains a mystery. Few people know that the venerable auction house they know today began with the sale of several hundred valuable books auctioned off by London bookseller and Sotheby’s founder, Samuel Baker on March 11, 1744. The history of Sotheby’s expanded well beyond books to include the finest in decorative arts, jewelry sales, and fine wine, and is defined by extraordinary auction moments that continue to capture the world’s attention today. Since 1744, Sotheby’s has distinguished itself as a leader in the auction world. Today, its auctions are conducted in ten different salerooms, including London, New York, Hong Kong and Paris. Sotheby’s BidNow programme allows consumers to participate in live auctions online and place bids from anywhere in the world. Season after season, the variety and excellence of Sotheby’s offerings have produced record-breaking sales. Historically, Sotheby’s has been entrusted with the sale of many of the world’s greatest treasures, amongst them including: the Estate of Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the Duchess of Windsor’s jewels, Rembrandt’s Aristotle Contemplating the Bust of Homer, Rubens’ Massacre of the Innocents, Picasso’s Garçon à la Pipe, Bacon’s Triptych, the Magna Carta, the first printing of the Declaration of Independence, The Martin Luther King Jr. Collection, and countless more. Sotheby’s has long recognized that great works of art, as well as the collectors interested in buying and selling them, inhabit the globe, which inevitably led to the brand’s introduction to real estate, establishing Sotheby’s International Realty in 1976.

If the Sotheby’s tradition has taught us anything, it’s how to present a rare treasure to a sophisticated and discerning audience. The Sotheby’s International Realty network benefits from a unique relationship with Sotheby’s Auction House, specifically in regard to exclusive marketing efforts available to affiliates. A variety of programs are available to help Sotheby’s International Realty sales associates capitalize upon these opportunities on a daily basis. With a dedicated liaison stationed at the Sotheby’s Auction House, we are able to showcase our properties for the auction clientele. This is a high-profile audience – affluent, discerning and exclusive, and the Sotheby’s network gives us privileged access. At the Sotheby’s Worldwide Headquarters in New York, a Sotheby’s International Realty brand desk can be found in the lobby. The desk serves as the first point of contact for Auction House clientele and employees and acts as a bridge between Sotheby’s International Realty brand offices around the world and this key audience. A digital gallery and brochure wall displays Sotheby’s International Realty properties from around the world, with similar displays emulated at Sotheby’s Auction Houses worldwide, offering unparalleled global exposure. An added benefit of the relationship between the Sotheby’s International Realty and the Auction House, is the availability of behind-the-scenes tours of the Sotheby’s Auction House, that are available to Sotheby’s International Realty agents and clients, allowing a rare glimpse into the inner workings of how auctions function. Today the Sotheby’s Auction House maintains 80 locations in 40 countries and conducts 250 auctions annually in over 70 categories, with the opportunity for Sotheby’s International Realty affiliates to have a live presence at some of these world-renowned auctions. In addition to Sotheby’s four principal salerooms in New York, London, Geneva and Paris, the company, recognizing the potential in new markets, also conducts auctions in six other salerooms around the world, including Hong Kong. telluridesothebysrealty.com 7 crestedbuttesothebysrealty.com

A GLOBAL LEADER WITH AN EYE ON THE FUTURE Together, the Sotheby’s Auction House and Sotheby’s International Realty remain at the forefront of technology, revolutionizing the industry with unrivaled reach and resources, as well as a commitment to providing high-resolution photography, high-definition videography and 3-D virtual reality tours to market the homes and possessions we represent. By using cutting edge technology, real estate agents can help their buyers and sellers overcome difficult barriers to closing a sale. One of those challenges is often a failure to envision an empty house as a home. Sotheby’s International Realty recognized this physical and emotional disconnect and created a solution. Curate by Sotheby’s International Realty is a revolutionary augmented reality (AR) mobile app that allows one to see rooms in a home virtually staged as they are being toured. Potential buyers can visualize what an empty home will look like

fully furnished, just by holding up and looking through their mobile devices. The first real estate brand to launch and implement a virtual staging AR app, Sotheby’s International Realty places high importance on striving to be a leader in adopting the latest technologies and tools to better serve its sales associates and most importantly, its clients. Curate by Sotheby’s International Realty was built with ARCore, Google’s AR software platform, and is powered by roOomy, the leading virtual staging technology platform which specializes in 3D/AR/ VR content creation and application development. The app features capabilities that simply wouldn’t be possible with physical staging. Real estate agents and sellers can collaborate to create an appealing interior design with different aesthetic options ranging from modern to rustic, to more traditional styles. What’s more, if the client is

unsatisfied with the virtual staging, simply change it. There’s no hassle of moving furniture, making Curate by Sotheby’s International Realty the easiest option for dressing up a vacant home. Not only can users explore the virtually staged homes in augmented reality, but they can also purchase the furniture used in the virtual interior designs by simply tapping the items on the screen to get more product information and link to shop on the retailers’ website. Retail partners include Sotheby’s Home, Pottery Barn, and Perigold, to name a few. Whether through the purchase or sale of art, jewelry, wine, or real estate, the lineage of Sotheby’s global success, is rooted in a commitment to excellence above all else. In a world that is increasingly fast-paced, this tireless commitment to quality presents an extraordinary partnership of real estate professionals and art connoisseurs that can deliver unmatched service, value, and results.
