Editions

Phillips defines the Editions category. Our curated sales of museum-quality prints and multiples offer budding collectors and seasoned connoisseurs the opportunity to acquire original and important works by masters of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We pride ourselves on educating a new generation's eye by introducing our clients to new artists and techniques, responding to collecting trends and presenting superb examples of rare and iconic artworks.

We are dedicated to elevating the status of Editions as an artistically significant, often experimental and endlessly fascinating collecting category. Auctions are held four times a year at our New York and London salerooms and we are the only international auction house to hold curated Evening sales of the best and rarest works in the Editions category. Our sophisticated approach yields exceptional results. 2015 was a record-breaking year for the Editions department, with a global sale total of $20 million and auction records for over 25% of offered lots. We expect to see these totals to grow throughout the 2016-'17 season. 
 
Designed exclusively for the sale of Modern and Contemporary Art, our galleries enable clients to interact with Editions in the highest quality aesthetic experience the commercial art world has to offer. Each Editions pre-sale exhibition receives more than 2,000 visitors, many of whom are discovering Phillips for the first time, resulting in an average of 30% new bidders at every Editions auction. 

Phillips' seamless marketing and communications campaigns ensure the greatest possible visibility for Editions auctions. Our dynamic and scholarly catalogues, produced in both printed and digital formats, are held as the benchmark for the presentation of Editions sales. Artworks are further promoted with gallery tours, events and panel discussions involving prominent experts and artists.

Phillips' superior ability to orchestrate Editions sales and cultivate new, enthusiastic collectors is unrivaled in the field. If you are interested in receiving a valuation, selling your Editions with us or would like some advice on growing your collection, please be in touch.
