Founded in 1766 by James Christie, Christie's is the world's oldest fine art auction house holding over 450 auction sales annually in more than 80 categories of art and collectibles. Christies Images include some of the most important art works to have passed through the auction rooms in more recent years. The collection ranges from old masters, impressionist and Modern paintings to weird and wonderful objects such as a shrunken head from Ecuador! Our relationship with Christie's goes back 30 years, and we are proud that Christie's have now granted Bridgeman access to their entire image collection. This gives our clients unparalleled access to this truly amazing photo resource that continues to grow by over 150,000 images each year.
