Auction Categories

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.
