Dreweatts offers three sales of Modern & Contemporary Art a year comprising traditional and post-war Modern British art, alongside Impressionist and international contemporary art spanning the breadth of the 20th century up to the present day. The auctions cover a wide range of media including paintings, works on paper and sculpture. In addition, our regular online sales provide an outlet for more modestly priced works, allowing us to cater for every budget.

The picture team is also regularly involved in Dreweatts’ flagship Collection sales which have seen unprecedented success and witnessed some truly significant prices.

Our specialists have a passion for their subject combined with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the auction market. We pride ourselves on providing the best possible guidance to both consignors and buyers and are happy to advise on items for sale, insurance, or probate. Our printed catalogues offer intelligent scholarship backed up by creative online and traditional marketing as well as an innovative and informative website. Our Modern & Contemporary Art sales are held at Dreweatts’ Donnington Priory saleroom in March, July and October with highlights previewed at our London exhibition space on Pall Mall.

From single owner collections and studio sales to individual stand-out lots, Dreweatts Modern & Contemporary Art sales offer a plethora of enticing artworks. Whether it is an evocative still life by one of the Bloomsbury Group or a 1950s abstract landscape by Ivon Hitchens; from Pop Art to YBAs, you can trust the team at Dreweatts to research, present, and market your work so that it is seen by bidders all over the world and achieves its full potential at auction.
