Important & Rare Fine Art Auctions

Important & Rare auctions are the proven, pre-eminent sale category for major works of art offered for sale in New Zealand. These auctions take place three times annually. As we fast approach our 50th year in business, experience continues to equal results. 2014 saw Important & Rare auctions realise five of New Zealand's top ten auction prices. The following year saw new records set with the two top prices in Auckland achieved. With the addition of the record $1.175 million plus premium paid for a C F Goldie in April's 2016 sale, International Art Centre achieved the three highest art auction prices in New Zealand's history. Due to an appreciative, and greatly valued clientele of nationwide and international buyers and sellers we look forward to breaking new ground. Charles Frederick Goldie, Colin McCahon, Felix Kelly, Gottfried Lindauer and Frances Hodgkins are just some of the highlighted artist's we seek for these sales.

Collectable Art

The buzz generated by International Art Centre's Collectable Art auctions reflects the popularity of this sale: an event at which seasoned connoisseurs and budding collectors alike converge to appreciate one of the most eclectic and diverse offerings available to the market. Because this auction specifically caters to the more affordable end of the market - generally presenting works valued at $5,000 and less (many of which are offered without reserve), this is an exciting opportunity to unearth some real treasures. The Collectable Art sale offers a number lower-priced works from highly-sought after artists in print and edition form, as well as quality works from artists whose presence on the secondary market is just beginning to crystallise. Sales of Modern and Contemporary art play an integral role in providing market access to the most sought-after artists many of whom have defined New Zealand's art narrative over the past 50 years. These sales present an exciting offering of both painting and sculpture by a range of our modern and contemporary greats. Spanning that vital period from the establishment of mid-century modernism through to the cutting edge of our national contemporary art discourse, this is an acclaimed and significant event in the auction calendar.
