Sothebys_loc_day

Sotheby's opened the doors of its New York offices in 1955, and in 1967 acquired the largest US fine art auction house of the time, Parke-Bernet.

As the current headquarters for Sotheby's global business, our New York office is the site of nearly 100 high-profile auctions each year, from eagerly anticipated sales of Impressionist & Modern Art, Contemporary Art and extraordinary Jewellery to those of rare historical objects such as the Magna Carta and the Emancipation Proclamation. During the past three years, our New York auctions have realised $5.35 billion and continue to build upon a history of success.

Sotheby's New York sales attract collectors from all over the world, including North and South America, the whole of Europe, the Middle East and many Asian countries. This global participation has resulted in a long list of prices that represent extraordinary benchmarks in auction history, including the world record for any work of art at auction: Edvard Munch’s iconic masterpieceThe Scream, which in May 2012 achieved $119.9 million. Other notable sales include $104.3 million and $95.2 million for Pablo Picasso's Garcon à la Pipe and Dora Maar au Chat, respectively. Artist records have also been set for Francis Bacon with the 2008 auction of Triptych achieving $86.3 million and Clyfford Still’s 1949-A-No. 1 reaching $61.7 million in 2011. In 2007, the 5,000-year-old Guennol Lioness commanded a staggering $57.2 million, setting a record for any antiquity.

Sotheby's New York features exhibition space on six floors, a soaring nine-story glass atrium and galleries designed by museum architect Richard Gluckman, whose list of credits include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and the much-admired permanent collection galleries in the Whitney Museum of American Art. Our expansive 22,000-square-foot space includes a state-of-the-art lighting system that enables nuances and subtleties of color and surface to be strikingly revealed. No other auction house, regional or international, can offer such extraordinary visual impact.

Sotheby’s New York offers comprehensive services for clients worldwide. We provide estimates and insurance valuations for all collecting categories and can also advise on shipping, buying and selling with Sotheby's.

At present, we are actively seeking consignments in all collecting areas for inclusion in upcoming sales.
