Established in 1744, Sotheby’s is the world’s largest, most trusted and dynamic marketplace for art and luxury.
We empower our international community of collectors and connoisseurs to discover, acquire, finance and consign fine art and rare objects. Our reputation for trust and authenticity is backed by our unparalleled global network of specialists spanning 40 countries and 44 departments, which include Contemporary Art, Modern and Impressionist Art, Old Masters, Chinese Works of Art, jewelry, watches, wine and spirits, and interiors, among many others. Guided by our forward-thinking spirit of innovation, we host over 600 auctions annually and offer a cross-category selection of items available for immediate purchase via both digital and physical shopping experiences as well as private sales.
Sotheby’s reaches every point of the worldwide art market, including places like New York, Paris, Hong Kong and Doha that we first opened to international participation.
With 80 locations in 40 countries, 9 salerooms around the world and private sales galleries in New York, Hong Kong and London, Sotheby’s conducts some 250 auctions a year in more than 70 categories. Our digital innovations allow our clients to connect with us any time, from any place, on any device.
Since Sotheby's Tokyo office opened, it has become a valuable resource for local clients.
With the help of Sotheby's international experts in all areas of fine and decorative art, jewellery, books and collectibles, we are able to assist you if you have questions regarding buying or selling, or wish to have an object from your collection valued. If you wish to enquire about the possibility of offering a work for sale, please call the office prior to visiting. The Tokyo office is also happy to facilitate absentee bids or arrange for the shipment of consigned or purchased property.
At present, we are actively seeking consignments in major collecting areas for inclusion in Sotheby's upcoming sales worldwide.
