Auction > Introduction

Haus Gallery is the oldest Estonian auction house, functioning already since the year 1997.


Traditionally in the gallery rooms auctions are being held twice a year: at the end of April and October. Additionally the gallerie organizes special auctions (dedicated to one artist, period etc) and has helped to organise charity art auctions for supporting of Tallinn Children’s hospital.
Haus Galerii art auctions have concentrated on the older Estonian painting, but also on classics of modern art. At each auction participate around 40 paintings, the auction is preceeded by an exhibition of all of the works that participate at the auction, lasting about a couple of weeks. Issued is a catalogue, which presents longer explanatory texts of all of the works. Before the auction specialists of the art museum give an expert evaluations proving authorship of all of the works. If necessary, we restore the paintings (clean, adjust into frames, etc.) and re-framing. It is necessary to register yourself as an auction participant, participation at the auction takes place with the number that is received at registration. Works have an initial price, from which start offers according to the set price step.

 

Haus Galerii  auctions are known by their evenly high and strong choice of works. Besides art historical gems we have always brought out a work by a forgotten author or a work which has just recently been discovered.
A different chapter is always dedicated to a work, originating from modern art classics. As a rule, the works originate from the period from the second half of the 19. century until the end of the 1970ies.
