Citi Private Bank and Sotheby’s join forces to celebrate Art: Beyond Borders

2019 marks the fortieth anniversary of Citi Private Bank’s pioneering Art Advisory & Finance global business. To mark the occasion, we are proud to announce a new partnership with Sotheby’s, one of the world’s foremost auction houses, with whom we’ve worked closely over the last four decades.


This is a collaboration between two global organizations that are pioneers in the world of art acquisition. Our partnership celebrates the unique power of art to promote understanding and progress across cultures via a global program called Art: Beyond Borders.


Art: Beyond Borders consists of a series of co-hosted events including private previews, launch receptions, and panel discussions in several locations around the world. It will also feature written editorial and a specially commissioned video series called ‘Most Famous Artworks in the World’ for the enjoyment of both our and Sotheby’s clients.


Our program is designed to take art collectors on an enlightening journey, using our combined expertise and insight to explore the world of art from different cultural and geographical perspectives.


In 1979, we established the first international Art Advisory & Finance team to help their worldly and wealthy clients choose, finance, and buy artwork. Since then, we have been leading the way by working with our clients to build and protect their art collections across multiple geographies.


Peter Charrington, Global Head of Citi Private Bank, commented ‘We share the passion for art with many of our global citizen clients. Our new partnership with Sotheby’s will give exclusive access to artwork, expertise, and fellow collectors in wonderful surroundings.’
