Auction Houses

In Manhattan, Uncategorized on March 6, 2009 at 5:27 pm

In addition to gallery shows, auction houses normally have some really fantastic shows of the collection they are going to sell. I’ve seen some incredible art (completely museum quality) at these sort of shows and all for free. And this out-does a gallery show because the quality truly is museum quality – and may in fact be bought by a museum or another high quality institution. 

To check out these shows, check the websites of the major auction houses for details. If you hear of a good auction coming up – the contemporary and modern evening auctions come to mind – it’s likely that they’ll have a really excellent preview of these for-sale pieces. 

Check it out. The best art is often found in the most unexpected places.
