Their expertise covers all schools in this diverse category, including Dutch, Flemish, German, French, Spanish, British and Italian Old Master Paintings. Our specialists’ unparalleled relationships with established collectors and new buyers alike have resulted in numerous world records, including the three highest prices for Old Master and British Paintings sold at auction. Our recent sales have attracted individuals from nearly 70 countries, driving prices ever higher and procuring consistently strong returns for consignors.
