Ian Scott with Gordon Walters' Waiata (photograph: Nan Corson, 1981), sold privately by Art+Object in 2018 for an undisclosed amount.

In addition to our public auction programme, Art+Object has a dedicated and growing private sales department, supported by a separate exhibition space. Despite first and foremost being an auction house, we realise and understand the need for an alternative means of buying and selling unique works of art in a discreete and private manner.

Art+Object’s close relationship with many of the country’s leading collectors and collections enables us to procure exceptional works of art on behalf of clients. By offering an additional private sales service, Art+Object can assist in the sourcing of specific objects at a fixed price, broker a sale discreetly and avoid the restrictions of the auction calendar.

Our private sales division can also provide advice and strategies on shaping and developing your collection.
