Contemporary Art

There has been a huge rise in interest in contemporary art in recent years fuelled by prices at the top end of the market for works by artists such as Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud. 

Sellers are recognising that we are able to achieve London prices for contemporary art without the associated costs. Our quarterly sales regularly attract a large number of buyers in person, on the telephone and online. Ewbank’s were listed in the respected Blouin Art Info Guide 2015 for the top auction houses worldwide for art sales, one of only thirteen UK auction houses featured. Recently Ewbank's have sold important single owner collections of Contemporary Art including the collection of Michael Compton in 2014 (the former curator at Tate, London). As well as the Robinson Collection of works by Francis Bacon in 2007 which received global news coverage and raised over a £1 million hammer price total.
