To accompany this wonderful Indian Summer climate we are enjoying, why not drop by Sotheby's, Christie's and Phillips DuPury within the next two weeks. "Pre-Sale Exhibitions" will be showcased for viewing with open access to the public.
"...Before the big sales, the auction houses will be filled with multimillion-dollar masterpieces and blue chip contemporary artwork, and are open to everyone, not just the art elite..." New York Times
Take the opportunity to indulge yourself in a wonderful viewing experience that will be a monumental memory. This artwork consigned for sale to the public at auction arrives directly from private collections - some of it hasn't been seen for decades, and perhaps will never be seen again in your lifetime.
This Fall Auction Season is expected to be exceptionally strong due to the state of the global economic climate. Many international buyers are expected to be on board for the chance to acquire the objects of their passion or asset investment allocation.
Be there, or be square!
