This November, Sotheby’s will present a Modern British & Irish Art sale week offering four dedicated sale contexts - supported by a global marketing campaign - celebrating the best of Modern British, Scottish and Irish Art. Select highlights of Scottish art will be offered in our live auction of Modern British & Irish Art on the 23 November at 2pm, followed by our online sale of Scottish Art, which closes on 24 November at 1pm.


The exhibitions and auctions in London will be preceded by an exhibition of the Scottish artworks at The Edinburgh Grand (1–4 November). As the only international auction house to offer this dual approach and supported by an international marketing campaign, our sales will offer consignors and collectors unrivalled contexts in which to sell and source Scottish art.


Highlights already consigned include exceptional examples by the Scottish Colourists, in addition to other major names of modern and contemporary Scottish art including John MacLauchlan Milne, Anne Redpath, Joan Eardley and John Bellany amongst others.

 

The sales follow on from the exceptional results achieved in Sotheby’s single-owner sale of Scottish pictures, The Way of Colour: Pictures from the Harrison Collection in March this year. Over the past 12 months Sotheby’s digital innovations have established ourselves as worldwide market leaders and we have seen in-depth, worldwide bidding from new and established collectors for Scottish art.

 

We will be closing for consignments in September. If you would like to discuss your artwork, please do not hesitate to contact one of our specialists.
