Live and online auctions brought Christie's $5.4 / £3.9 billion, private sales - $1.7 / £1.3 billion.
Сlients in each region contributed roughly one-third of  Christie’s total auction sales by value: Americas 35%, EMEA 34%, and Asia 31%. 
Guillaume Cerutti, Christie’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: 
“We are pleased with our 2021 achievements. Beyond our auction and private sales results -which are exceptional, Christie’s has also made a breakthrough in new sales formats and categories, NFTS in particular.  They have allowed us to showcase works by new emerging and under-represented artists, and to reach out to a new audience of younger clients. We have also made great progress in other priorities, with important investments in Asia and with our commitments to becoming carbon net-zero by 2030, and to building and sustaining a more equitable and diverse profile for our company. Growth, innovation, and responsibility remain at the forefront of our objectives for 2022.”
