OUR SALES

Characterised by competitive bidding, strong results and a high selling rate, our Contemporary & Post-War Art sales are among our most popular auctions. Held three times a year in our Scottish saleroom, highlights are also regularly exhibited in our London gallery. Our strong private client base and excellent international marketing reach has seen these sales grow into flagships of our company.

Encompassing works by both emerging and internationally regarded contemporary artists and sculptors, we have achieved top prices for household names including John Hoyland (a world record), Bridget Riley, Eduardo Paolozzi (a world record for a sculpture), Terry Frost, Nicholas Party, Alison Watt and Callum Innes. Regularly featured local favourites include John Bellany and the ‘New Glasgow Boys’ Peter Howson, Ken Currie, Steven Campbell, as well as John Byrne and Alasdair Gray.

 

CORPORATE COLLECTIONS & STUDIO SALES

Lyon & Turnbull also have extensive experience handling the sale of corporate collections, with major clients including Deloitte, Drambuie and Herbert Smith Freehills. Our Contemporary & Post-War Art auctions provide an exciting platform for such collections, and we pride ourselves on providing a professional, discrete and above all enthusiastic service. Similarly, we have a successful record with the sale of artist's studios: Adrian Wiszniewski, John Cunningham and George Wyllie being memorable highlights.
