Sotheby’s is the largest auctioneer to offer specialist sales of Modern African Art and offers unrivalled expertise in this field. Since the establishment of the department in 2016, Sotheby’s has consistently achieved outstanding results for artists in this category including over 100 world records for the most important and valuable 20th Century and 21st Century African artists including Demas Nwoko, Julie Mehretu, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Toyin Ojih Odutola, William Kentridge and Yinka Shonibare CBE. These sales have attracted collectors from more than 60 different countries across six continents, championing the work of African artists and underscoring the rising global interest in this category.


This March, we are delighted to present a specially curated collection of paintings, photographs, drawings and sculpture from across the African continent and diaspora. Highlights include works by highly sought-after artists including Ben Enwonwu, Cheri Samba, Hassan El Glaoui and Mohamed Melehi.
