A crowd of cartoonish figures gathers on the floor of Christie's auction room, with figures examining artwork, talking amongst each other, and bidding on pieces. The auctioneer stands at the podium, gesturing to his right with his gavel in hand, where a painting is being handled. Paintings in gilt frames line the walls of the room.
Aquatinted by J. Bluck (fl. 1791-1819), from Ackermann's Microcosm of London Vol 1
