Lempertz - The international Auction House close to you

Welcome to our auction house!

Last year, Lempertz Auctioneers celebrated its 175th anniversary, and therewith, its position as the oldest family-owned auction house in the world. Thank you so much for your support! Despite the pandemic, our jubilee was a landmark year for us, with two world records achieved for our clients. The most expensive Old Master painting ever sold in Germany went to an international museum and with a price of 4.3 million euro, was a record price for the painter Georges de La Tour. 

Our long-term focus on the online offer has paid off: in the last year, our online sales have exploded compared to pre-Corona times. The majority of bidders utilised our online streaming service or were connected to the auction room by telephone. We would like to thank you for your encouragement and your trust on this shared journey!

But, as always: post auction is pre auction. We are proud to already promise an exciting offer for the coming autumn season, and would also be pleased to be given the opportunity to value your works of art. You are welcome to register for our Newsletter, which you can personalise to your preferred interests. Let us stay connected during these special times!

We look forward to seeing you and your art!

Auction house with a long tradition

Kunsthaus Lempertz is a family-owned auction house with a long tradition. Our history reaches back to the late 18th century. We are not only very proud of this, but it also reinforces our passion for art.

The departments and auctions in our auction house include Old Masters, Decorative Arts, Antiques, Silver, Modern Art, Contemporary Art, Photography, Asian Art, African and Oceanic Art as well as Watches and Jewellery. In each department our experts are at your service and are happy to advise you.  Prior to every auction you also have the possibility to view the objects in our previews. Each department has at least one auction a year, most of them two. The exact dates can also be found here on the website.

If you wish to have your artwork evaluated or sold, wish to make a purchase, or are interested in a particular auction, please contact us!

Register to bid online and on the phone in our auction house

In case you are not able to attend at the auction itself, you can follow the sale online. Bidding online is also of course possible – even when the auction takes place in Cologne whilst you are in London. In addition, the auction highlights, results and After Sale can all be found on the website where you are also able to notify us of your bids.

Under MyLempertz you have the possibility to set up a personal profile, to mark your favourites and register yourself for our Newsletter to receive regular information about our auctions and to discover new art.
