While the thought of an art auction can conjure images of fast-talking auctioneers, adrenaline-fuelled bidding and eleventh-hour drama, it can also feel intimidating to a first-time collector.
In reality, bidding has never been easier or more accessible!
The user portal is your source for all functions related to bidding, and setting up your personal account is simple.
Register for any upcoming sale directly from our UPCOMING AUCTIONS page or through an individual sale page.
You will also automatically be registered for a sale when you submit absentee bids through our website.
PLACING YOUR BIDS
Submit your maximum absentee bid(s) online through a lot page. You can also place bids on those lots added to your Wishlist directly from your account portal.
Before placing your bids, please make sure to review our Buyer’s Commission and Terms & Conditions.
