Publisher's description: Founded in London in 1766, Christie's is one of the most important auction houses in the world. During its history, Christie's has sold the personal possessions of such historical figures as Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Napoleon Bonaparte, Vincent van Gogh, and, away from the world of art, Marilyn Monroe, Yves Saint Laurent, and Princess Diana. From furniture to works of fine and decorative art, vintage cars to clothing and jewellery, the items sold by its auctions hold a mirror to our history and reflect our culture at large. Going Once vividly brings to life the shifts in aesthetic trends, fashion, and design over the centuries, showcasing 250 of the most outstanding objects in its storied history, including some of the very first pieces sold at the auction house.
