I thought I’d take a quick moment to briefly talk about the treasures that can be uncovered on a quick visit to one of London’s reputable and distinguished auction houses.
It is little talked about what can be found at such places as many believe that such venues are only open to the wealthy art collector or the affluent man about town. However before sales, lots to be auctioned off are open for viewing to the public and are really worth a visit!
Just today, whilst window shopping in Mayfair I took the opportunity to drop into Sotheby’s and discovered a large array of impressionist and modern art. Many of the pieces are often from private collections and have rarely been seen, and may never be seen again. The collections on display are always impressive, if not eye opening, especially as guide prices are given, so not only are you experiencing scarcely seen art, but one can also learn a little about buying and its worth.
In my opinion the world of the auction house merits the praise of the top galleries and exhibitions and must be taken advantage of!
The impressionist and modern art sale mentioned in this article will take place on 8 February.
