A year like no other! We reflect on a tumultuous 2020 whilst looking forward to what this year has to offer in our annual review
It gives me great pleasure to introduce Sworders’ Annual Review (click image above), which reflects on a tumultuous past year whilst looking forward to 2021.
It was a remarkable twelve months, however, I believe we can move forward with great confidence. The Art Market has, once again, proved its great resilience and has, if anything, strengthened across 2020.
We are in a strong position to grasp the opportunities the new year will undoubtedly offer. We continue to build and strengthen our team in Stansted, London and Hertford and have many wonderful auctions in the pipeline for the year.
If you would like to talk to us about selling a collection or single item we would be delighted to hear from you.
A rare work by the extraordinary Sarah Biffin (1784-1850), an early 19th century artist born without limbs, will go under the hammer in our Fine Interiors auction this December.
