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!

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.
