As a longtime leader in the art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas, Sotheby’s brings unsurpassed knowledge and market expertise to sourcing and selling the finest and rarest works from these categories. Indicative of the demand for Oceanic objects, a pair of rapa (dance paddles) sold at Sotheby’s Paris for €3,876,700, the top price of 2017 and an auction record for sculpture from Easter Island. In the same sale, a Fang reliquary head and a 17th–18th century Edo bronze head achieved similarly impressive results, demonstrating collectors’ appetite for those classical genres of African sculpture. In New York, strong bidding on Pre-Columbian and American Indian art affirmed Sotheby’s commitment to those fields. Click ahead for exceptional results from the past year, and consign now for the upcoming season.
