Auction - Japanese, Korean Art disappoint

Christie's sale of Japanese and Korean Art didn't fair as well as one could have expected in the current boombing environment. The New York sale achieved $4.39 million with only 63% of lots sold  (69% sold by value). The top lot was a rare and important blue and white jar, Joseon Dynasty (18th century), which achieved $662,500, above its estimate. Park Sookeun, Two Seated Women (1964) also sold well above its estimate
