"We have historically adapted to a changing world. We are still an auction house, but today we are also much more. We have built on our 270 years of success to become an innovative and global art business. And with very good reason – new markets now account for 40% of worldwide buying activity in our sales rooms," said Ruprecht. "This week's Evening Sale of Impressionist and Modern Art is a great example. We saw bidders from 45 countries participating – including the largest number from Latin America and Asia we have ever witnessed for an Evening Sale of Impressionist and Modern Art at Sotheby's. We are truly bringing a world of art to a new world."Second Quarter Sales
