We are pleased to present the December Discoveries sales, which bring together diverse artworks of various media, regions and eras from each of Sotheby’s Fine Art Departments in an exciting sale context. The sales bring together paintings, prints, photographs and sculptures from the last 150 years. Modern Discoveries focuses on early Impressionism through ground-breaking Abstract Expressionism. Contemporary Discoveries focuses on artwork from the 1960s to today. This sale series is designed with the collector of today in mind: both emerging buyers, who have no reason to limit the scope of their collections, as well as those connoisseurs whose collections already transcend traditional categories.


The Contemporary Discoveries auction will open for bidding on Wednesday, December 7th, and lots will close in succession on Thursday, December 15th. Kindly note, the highlights exhibition will open at our York Avenue galleries on Saturday, December 10th.
