Bonhams most recent auction of Post-War & Contemporary Art achieved a sell-through rate of 95% by lot and an average price of lots sold over £190,000. This culminates three years of exponential growth through a sale format that focuses on a fewer number of only exceptional lots by artists who are world class in all the definitions of value beyond merely the financial.

Our state-of-the-art headquarters in the heart of Mayfair on London's New Bond Street as well as first class centres on New York's Madison Avenue and Hong Kong's Pacific Place, a track record of excellence built over the course of 220 years, and a global network across 25 countries means we can offer Evening Sale treatment for every lot that we consign.
