American Art

Year after year, Sotheby’s carefully curated American Art auctions draw an avid audience and produce exceptional results for consignors. With eight of the ten highest sale totals in the field, eight of the ten highest auction prices of all time, and eight of the ten most valuable single-owner collections, Sotheby’s is the leading seller of American paintings, drawings and sculpture.

We offer fine American works dating from the Colonial portraits of Gilbert Stuart through the romantic landscapes and Western scenes of the 19th century to the American Impressionists, the Ashcan School and the Modernists. Sales typically include important works by renowned artists such as George Bellows, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Norman Rockwell and John Singer Sargent, amongst many others.

Our team comprises four experts based in New York, whose passion for their specialty and the trust they inspire in buyers and sellers alike has generated many record results, including the highest price—$35 million for Asher B. Durand’s Kindred Spirits.

Sotheby's major American Art sales are held in May and November in New York. Mid-season sales comprising more moderately valued works take place in April and September.
