Say one thing for ace auctioneer Christopher Burge -- he knows how to make an exit. Taking his final turn at the podium at Christie’s New York evening sale of post-war and contemporary art on May 8, 2012 (Burge is not retiring, though he is giving up the auctioneer’s gavel to Jussi Pylkkanen), he oversaw a sale that totaled a record-setting $388,488,000 (with premium), with 56 of 59 lots selling, or 95 percent.
