Fine art auction results join independent, transparent searchable database
Heritage Auctions, the largest auction house founded in America and the world’s third largest overall, has entered into a strategic partnership with Auction Club, a large-scale database of fine art auction records from more than 1,500 auction houses.
“Heritage Auctions’ dedication to transparency is a seamless match with Auction Club’s mission,” said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions. “We are excited to add more than 100,000 fine art sales results to Auction Club’s database.”
Auction Club is the only large-scale provider of historic fine art auction results that does not organize auctions or have its own marketplace, and because of that Auction Club can operate fully independent and objective. "A partnership with Heritage became possible because of that independence. Rather than competing with auction companies or sales platforms, we surface objective, unaltered sales results," Auction Club Co-Founder and Director William Vanmoerkerke said.
A similar approach around independence and objectivity upholds Auction Club’s upcoming discovery platform. The firm provides users with the largest discovery platform of upcoming works for sale across 4,000 houses worldwide.
“The partnership with Heritage Auctions is particularly important to us, as Heritage is taking a proactive approach in using technology to highlight their works and attract buyers across the globe,” Vanmoerkerke said. “Because of our objectivity and easy to use interface, experts can now rely on Heritage and Auction Club data for valuation of works or for their ongoing market research.”
Heritage Auctions is the largest fine art and collectibles auction house founded in the United States, and the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer. Heritage maintains offices in New York, Dallas, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Beach, Paris, Geneva, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.
Auction Club indexes fine art auction records from over 1,500 auction houses dating back to the 1980s, with over 6,000,000 fact-checked results, through a user-friendly interface far surpassing other available solutions..
