Dates for traveling exhibitions will be announced in due course. The health and safety of our employees, clients and visitors continue to be our first priority.
Sotheby’s continues to offer a range of sale opportunities and formats, including private sale and online auctions, to maximize flexibility in meeting our clients’ needs during this period. Despite the challenges presented this year, collectors continue to look for opportunities to buy and sell great art.
With the requirements of our consignors and our responsibility to the international art market in mind, we plan to review final decisions about each event approximately 30 days before to the existing sale date and will alert all relevant parties in the event of further changes.
Sotheby’s is technologically equipped to operate in a variety of scenarios and, we are reviewing different formats to provide for sales to proceed in the most effective manner.
