Art Auctions

Auction houses are the primary way for collectors to sell or buy artworks, even though galleries sell many works. There are many auctions locally, regionally and nationally. Finding the right one for your piece depends on the subject matter and period time.


Auction houses charge different commissions, so investigate thoroughly or have a consultant help you make a choice which is best. The market is always changing and you need to be informed. (Use an art consultant whenever possible.)
