``Asian buyers were by far the most active shoppers, bidding consistently by telephone through the auction house's representatives throughout the evening. According to officials there, Asian bidders managed to snap up $63.9 million worth of art, or roughly one-third of the evening's $219 million total. Sotheby's had estimated the sale would bring in $218.1 million to $317.9 million. The auction house offered 71 works, and of those, 21 failed to sell.''
