African & Oceanic Art


Since the pioneering sale of Helena Rubinstein’s collection in 1966 in New York, Sotheby’s African and Oceanic Art department has led the category, offering the highest quality and rarest examples of African and Oceanic art and repeatedly setting world records, including highest price ever paid for an African sculpture.

Sotheby’s holds regular African and Oceanic auctions throughout the year in our two principal selling locations, New York and Paris.
