Gallery Exhibition

The public is invited to view presale exhibitions for certain auctions in our New York gallery. These exhibitions are free of charge and presented with safety in mind. Please check individual auction web pages for the most up-to-date exhibition schedule. Property can also be viewed by appointment outside of the exhibition hours on other days and evenings. We ask that all visitors to our gallery follow health and safety protocols in compliance with CDC guidelines.

Bidders are encouraged to discuss the property with our staff in advance of the auction. Because all property is sold "as is," it is important to request a Condition Report. Condition Reports are subject to our Conditions of Sale. They are supplied free of charge by our specialists and may be requested through our Client Services Department. Live Online Bidding: BidLive!
