On 29 and 30 June 2022, Sotheby’s will hold a series of sales dedicated to Modern British Art, which will be the culmination of a month of promotional exhibitions and events celebrating British creativity, staged to coincide with the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


Our Live auction of Modern British Art on 30 June will include the best of British Art from across the 20th century, featuring works by Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, L.S. Lowry, Walter Sickert, Henry Moore, as well as artists working today, such as Bridget Riley and Frank Auerbach.
