How to buy

For over four centuries, the French tradition of publicly auctioning personal property has provided unique guarantees of professionalism and secure transactions. The auctions are called public because they are open to all: anybody may attend as a spectator, place bids and acquire lots. An auction therefore allows a "fair price" to be established for an object, thanks to a transparent and public confrontation of offer and demand. It is also a unique opportunity to discover the art market and learn how to appreciate the works.
