ART WORD â€“ More on â€œLes Femmes dâ€™Algerâ€�, Not Just a Valuable Abstract | Stremmel Gallery
Jussi Pylkkänen, president of Christie's, who on Monday night auctioned Picasso's "Les Femmes d'Alger" (Version O) to an anonymous buyer for $179.4m, thinks they do.
"People sometimes think of buying art as a frivolous occupation but these bidders are very conscious of what the object is worth, and they make decisions in an extremely considered way," Mr Pylkkänen assured me afterwards. He emphasised that the final bids for the Picasso, in a New York auction that raised $706m for 34 works of 20th-century art, proceeded in careful, $500,000 increments. "They suddenly say, 'I am never going to get this chance again', and go all the way," Mr Pylkkänen says of the world's ultimate art collectors.
According to Jussi Pylkkänen, global president of Christie's International: "On the night of 30 June here in London we will hold a landmark sale of major paintings and sculpture to celebrate our 250th year.
IMPRESSIONIST & MODERN ART | Fine Art Prints | Sale Departments | Christie's
President, Europe email@example.com Tel:+44 (0)20 7389 2836 Jussi Pylkkänen President, Europe Jussi studied English Literature at Oxford University where he graduated in 1984, before beginning his Christie's career as a junior specialist in the Old Master and Modern Print Department in 1986. Early in his career Jussi, Finnish by birth, was asked to travel broadly on the continent for a team which enjoyed considerable success. As a result of this he was soon asked to join the Impressionist and Modern Art Department as an Associate Director. After 5 years in the team he was appointed head of the Impressionist Department, a position which he held for a decade between 1995 and 2005. During this ten year period the department grew substantially, began to execute private sales and create powerful themed sales such as the sale of German and Austrian Art which outsold all other Impressionist sales in Europe in 1997. Mr Pylkkänen continues to be a senior valuer for the International Impressionist department. Jussi's particular passion is auctioneering and he has presided over major sales for Christie's and countless global charities. Jussi has conducted Evening sales for over 15 years and has helped break countless world records with a variety of departments. In June 2010 he oversaw the most expensive sale of Impressionist and Modern Art in Europe which broke the elusive £150,000,000 barrier. Between January and July of 2013 Jussi became the first auctioneer in the world to sell works of art for over £1,000,000,000 in a six month period: these sales included the current record for any auction achieved by Christie's Post-War team in May 2013 at an extra-ordinary $638,000,000. In February 2005 Jussi was appointed President of Christie's Europe having served as Deputy Chairman of Christie's UK since December 2000. His first year in this role saw the launch of several key expansion initiatives which have developed into significant areas of growth for the international art market: these include the opening of our Moscow offices which heralded the hosting of major exhibitions in Russia, as well as our major sales in Dubai which regularly convene great Middle Eastern collectors who have bid for some $300,000,000 of art since 2005. Last year also saw the launch of our Indian initiative: Christie's EMERI hosted our first auction in Mumbai in December. In 2011 Mr Pylkkänen was appointed President and Chairman of Christie's EMERI.
