In 1967, Sotheby’s hosted its first auction outside of the United Kingdom in Toronto, Canada. Old Master, Impressionist and Modern works of art crossed the Atlantic for the occasion and Sotheby’s has continued to serve the Canadian art market ever since. Our auctions of Canadian art set benchmarks across all tiers of the collecting category (including the highest price ever paid for a Canadian painting at auction, Paul Kane’s Scene of the Northwest). In 2012, we shifted focus towards private sales of exceptional Canadian works of art by members of the Group of Seven, Les Automatistes, Les Plasticiens, Painters 11, and masterpieces by Cornelius Krieghoff, James Wilson Morrice, Clarence Gagnon, Emily Carr and Alex Colville, among others.

In February-March 2014, Sotheby’s hosted the selling exhibition, Canadian Abstraction in our S|2 gallery at our New York headquarters, effectively reaching an international audience for Canadian Art.

Sotheby’s Toronto office continues to help Canadian collectors access the broader market by offering their property in our international salesrooms in New York, London, Paris and Hong Kong.
