Christie’s is one of the world’s leading auction houses. It started out in 1766 as a small shop in Pall Mall. Sixty years later James Christie’s son transferred the business to King’s Street, where it has remained ever since.

The most famous sale came in the 1980s, when Van Gogh’s Sunflowers went for £24.75 million. By 1997 Christie’s had worldwide sales of £1.2 billion. It was sold to Frenchman François Pinault shortly after.
