Sotheby’s Auction

Sotheby’s has been uniting collectors with world-class works of art since 1744, and 270 years later it has grown into one of the world’s leading full-service art businesses.


Sotheby’s has been uniting collectors with world-class works of art since 1744. Sotheby’s became the first international auction house when it expanded from London to New York (1955), the first to conduct sales in Hong Kong (1973), India (1992) and France (2001), and the first international fine art auction house in China (2012). Today, Sotheby’s has a global network of 80 offices in 40 countries and presents auctions in 10 different salesrooms, including New York, London, Hong Kong and Paris.

Sotheby’s BidNow program also allows visitors to view all auctions live online and place bids from anywhere in the world. Sotheby’s offers collectors the resources of  Sotheby’s Financial Services  , the world’s only full-service art financing company, as well as the collection, artist, estate & foundation advisory services of its subsidiary,  Art Agency, Partners  .
