World-renowned auction house Bonhams invites ArtPoint members to a special after-hours preview of the Period Art & Design Auction. Old Masters, 19th and 20th century paintings, prints and sculpture will be on show. Specialists from various Fine Arts departments can answer questions about the artwork and the auction process. The main gallery will be open to showcase antique furniture and decorative arts. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres served, courtesy of Bonhams.
Period Art & Design is a new sale format following the successful sales of the same name in London. This monthly event features fine art, antique furniture, modern designer furniture, decorative accents, silver and Asian works of art - all in the $500 - $5000 price range. Sourced primarily from the West Coast, the property hails from private residences and estates and will appeal to beginning collectors. Bonhams, founded in 1793, is one of world's oldest and largest auctioneers of fine art and antiques.
This event is an exclusive benefit for ArtPoint members (members may bring a guest); we hope that you will join us to learn more about the illustrious world of auctions!
