Since Sotheby’s pioneered sales in this category more than 40 years ago with The Helena Rubinstein Collection in 1966, our goal, season after season, has been to offer carefully curated sales of highly desirable property and deliver exceptional returns to our consignors.

We offer African and Oceanic Art made in or prior to the early 20th century for use in rituals or ceremonials within the traditional cultures of sub-Saharan Africa, Australia, Melanesia, Polynesia, Micronesia and Indonesia. This includes masks, figurative sculpture, amulets, jewellery, furniture and weaponry. Sotheby’s is the only international auction house with regular auctions in New York and Paris in these highly specialised collecting areas.

The commitment and focus of our international team of seven specialists attracts a global audience of bidders and has led to unmatched results for the sale of extraordinary objects and revered collections.

Sales of African and Oceanic Art are typically held in New York in May, and in Paris in June and December. The New York sales are scheduled to coincide with Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Art and Contemporary Art sales and feature works that appeal to a more Modernist sensibility. Our Paris sales focus on more traditional offerings. Single-owner sales are conducted in both locations as opportunities arise.
