Auctions & Auction dates

Auctions in Cologne, Berlin and Brussels

Around 18 auctions take place every year at Lempertz’ headquarters in Cologne, with further auctions in our branch offices in Berlin and Brussels. Lempertz traditionally starts in the spring and autumn with the auction of 14th to 19th Century Paintings. The Berlin Auction selling art related to Prussia has in the meantime also become a classic sale for Lempertz. The Brussels’ branch has been auctioning African and Oceanic art since 1992. Every auction features a week-long preview and richly illustrated catalogues which can be ordered individually from us or as a subscription.
