For nearly ten years now, Artcurial has been organising diverse and original auctions dedicated to past civilisations.
The Antiquities, Pre-Columbian and Islamic Art Department has gained a unique insight due to the infinite variety of artworks we have seen and background stories we have heard.
Auctioning famous collections, such as, for example, those of Wolf, Bourelier, Guerrand-Hermès, and Wenziner, has enabled the department to build strong ties with the most important collectors, offering them an absolute guarantee in terms of provenance.
With the support of renowned experts and researchers, the department can offer collectors the assurance of knowing that their items will receive the right valuation and will be made available on both the national and international marketplaces.
On 11th May 2021, Artcurial will hold a special auction: the sale of furniture from the apartment of Kenzo Takada, the legendary designer and icon of fashion.
Set in his Parisian apartment, where Kenzo spent the last years of his life, this collection of furniture, paintings, objects, works of art and fashion pieces , displays a subtle balance between the influences of East and West, reflecting the free spirit of this creative genius.
The year 2020 was notably marked by a number of records and millionaire auctions, such as an important stabile by Alexander Calder sold for €4.9M and the masterpiece the Penitent Magdalene by Salaì, a pupil of Leonardo da Vinci, which sold for €1.7M. Find out more in our video…
