Citi Private Bank has joined forces with Sotheby’s, a broker of fine art, real estate, and collectibles, to offer a new programme dubbed Art: Beyond Borders.

Through the partnership, the two parties will organise worldwide events for their clients.

They will also provide videos on various artists, with the first video launched on 1 May 2019.

Overall, five such videos will be launched. Each of them will showcase a different masterpiece from a major art institution and offer expert insight on the work.

Citi is not new to the art world. The bank started its Art Advisory & Finance business in 1979 and supports clients in building art collections through its in-house art specialists.

Citi Private Bank Art Advisory & Finance global head Suzanne Gyorgy said: “A shared passion for art brings people together, across cultures, around the world.
