Around a World of Art in 80 Days

As the first auctions of the London sale season commence, we start a whirlwind art tour of the globe. Around a World of Art in 80 Days explores a seminal moment in each country or continent’s art history through the inspiration, influence and history of key objects and paintings. As each of the sales shown here takes place, works by some of the world’s greatest artists from the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East to China will be exhibited.

Join the tour at whichever point you choose – a Sotheby’s specialist will give a complimentary gallery talk about each object at its pre-sale exhibition.
