Paintings & Sculpture 

 

Appraising and selling paintings and sculpture is at the heart of every successful auction house. Such a task, however, poses significant challenges, covering hundreds of years of artistic endeavour, in many styles and mediums. Sworders’ ability to identify and value works from a wide range of schools and periods, combined with careful presentation and marketing, has led to our achieving consistently strong results and some truly exceptional prices.

Sworders' Paintings & Sculpture department has grown over the last five years, processing over 4,000 lots a year, and now boasts a full and varied selection of sales including specialist art auctions of Modern & Contemporary Art, and  Sporting Art, Wildlife and Dogs. We are delighted to be launching our inaugural sale of Old Master, British & European Art on 27 September 2022. Further information on each of these sales can be found by following the links below.
