Impressionist & Modern Art

Overview

In 1958, Sotheby's pioneered the modern auction market with the sale of the Goldschmidt Collection, the first evening auction of Impressionist and Modern art. Since this landmark auction, Sotheby’s has offered the finest European paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the 19th century to beyond the post-Second World War period. In May 2012, Sotheby’s sold Edvard Munch’s iconic masterpiece, The Scream, for $120 million, at the time setting the world record for any work of art ever sold at auction.

Sotheby’s global team features internationally recognised specialists whose tenure and experience is unmatched by those at any other firm and includes former museum curators and dealers. Our specialists work in tandem with their colleagues around the world to source the most compelling works for our high-profile auctions and deliver exceptional returns to consignors. Their efforts and passion have attracted buyers from more than 60 countries to our recent sales, resulting in record prices and historic sales.

Sales of Impressionist and Modern art typically include masterworks by artists such as Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Gustav Klimt, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Vincent van Gogh. Major sales are held in February and June in London, and in May and November in New York. We also conduct sales in Paris and Milan.
