Midway through nine-days of scrutinizing, acquiring and discussing Asian art offerings from leading New York galleries and auction houses, Christie's staged a series of auctions that included a record-breaking $260 million one-night sale of 30 works of Chinese classical art from the Fujita Museum in Osaka, Japan.
