In response to the ever-growing demand for high quality prints, Heritage Auctions is expanding its Modern and Contemporary department to offer Weekly Online-Only Prints & Multiples auctions. The first sale, which closes November 7, 2018, presents artwork without reserves, allowing collectors of all levels to find enticing options to create or fill out collections.
“Prints are a great medium for collectors, from beginners to experts,” said Frank Hettig, Heritage Auctions Vice Present of Modern & Contemporary Art. “The quality of prints Heritage Auctions offers is such that interest has grown at an incredible pace. The addition of weekly auctions is the logical next step, as we broaden our reach to a wider scope of collectors.”
The popularity and collectability of prints have soared to the point that the auctions went from semi-annual events to monthly sales, and now to weekly events. The department will continue to present Live Floor Auctions in the Fall and Spring seasons, presenting the market’s high end prints.
The weekly auctions start every Wednesday. The inaugural sale is open and closes November 7. The auction features artworks by Keith Haring, Mr. Brainwash, Alexander Calder, Max Ernst, Shepard Fairey, Alex Katz, Red Grooms, KAWS, Robert Motherwell, Takashi Murakami, Pablo Picasso and Ken Price. At the conclusion of each auction, bidding opens for the following week’s auction.
