The Dorotheum is one of the world’s leading auction houses and, with a history stretching back over more than 300 years, is also the largest auction house in the German-speaking world. We have a network of international customers served through our representative offices worldwide.

The Dorotheum’s particular specialty is the categories of Modern and Contemporary Art. With our top results and world record prices we’ve again been able to attract significant levels of interest.

We have already been entrusted with important works for our next major auctions of Modern and Contemporary Art in November which will also be subject to international interest. An absolute highlight will be Giorgio de Chirico’s "Piazza d´ Italia". We will also be auctioning an important bronze by Jörg Immendorf and one of Günter Förg’s sought-after 1988 works. Other auction highlights will be works by Gustav Klimt, Kolo Moser, Fernand Léger, Georg Kolbe, Victor Vasarely, Martin Kippenberger, Imi Knoebel, Gerwald Rockenschaub and Franz West. In addition to Austrian and German paintings, these international offerings will have a strong Italian focus and will include, amongst others, works by Marino Marini and Lucio Fontana.
