Tuesday, January 28 sees Christie's, the world's most prestigious auction house, launch what it describes as its most accessible sale yet. Bids in the Christie's 100, an online-only auction, begin at $100, with a range of contemporary and collectible works by artists including Yayoi Kusama, KAWS, and Jeff Koons up for sale. The auction will be open from January 28 until Wednesday, February 5. You can find out more and submit a bid here.

Last year, the British auction house hosted a special sale in which Jeff Koons' Rabbit sculpture broke the record for the most expensive work by a living artist ever — selling for an astronomical $91.1 million. Lots are expected to be a little more affordable this time around, though, and Christie's 100 is another example of the esteemed house expanding its offering and audience.

Noah Davis, a specialist in Post-War and Contemporary Art, the department that assembled the sale, said: “It’s been a goal to introduce a venue like Christie’s 100 ever since I started putting together online sales, and after the encouraging success we’ve had selling online over the last few years, it’s finally here. We settled on the ‘100’ model to keep the sale tightly curated and so that no starting bid would be beyond striking distance for the fullest spectrum of bidders. Establishing this new level of inclusivity means collecting contemporary art has never been easier.”

Christie’s offers around 350 auctions annually in over 80 categories, including all areas of fine and decorative arts, jewelry, photographs, collectibles, wine, and more. Prices range from $200 to over $100 million.
