This department offers decorative arts and design from the Arts and Crafts movement through Art Nouveau and Art Deco, to works from the post-war years and on through contemporary design.
Our international design auctions include works by Gerrit Rietveld, William Morris, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Emile Gallé, Tiffany Studios, Greene & Greene, Frank Lloyd Wright, Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand and Ron Arad, among many others. Our international team includes eight highly experienced specialists in London, New York and Paris who work closely with their colleagues in Sotheby's worldwide locations to source the strongest examples from each period or style in this category.
