The Editions Department

Phillips defines the Editions category. Our curated sales of museum-quality Modern and Contemporary prints and multiples offer budding collectors and seasoned connoisseurs the opportunity to acquire original and important works by masters of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We pride ourselves on educating a new generation's eye by introducing our clients to new artists and techniques, responding to collecting trends and presenting superb examples of rare and iconicartworks.

We are dedicated to elevating the status of Editions as an artistically significant, often experimental and endlessly fascinating collecting category. Auctions are held globally throughout the year in our New York and London salerooms and we were the first international auction house to hold curated Evening Sales of the best and rarest works of the season. Our sophisticated approach yields exceptional results. 2022 was a record-breaking year for the Editions department, with a global sale total of over $40 million–our highest yet, we sold 95% of offered lots and an average of 46% of prices hammered at or above the high estimate. We expect these totals to grow in 2023 due to our ability to offer the most interesting mix of artwork and engage with the widest audience.

Designed exclusively to showcase Modern and Contemporary Art, our galleries enable clients to interact with Editions in the highest quality aesthetic experience the commercial art world has to offer. Each Editions pre-sale exhibition receives more than 2,000 visitors, many of whom are discovering Phillips for the first time, resulting in an average of 30% new bidders at every Editions auction.

Phillips' dynamic digital marketing and communications campaigns ensure the greatest possible visibility for Editions auctions. Our engaging scholarly online essays and video content, are held as the benchmark for the presentation of Editions sales. Artworks are further promoted with gallery tours, receptions and panel discussions involving prominent experts and artists.

Phillips' superior ability to orchestrate Editions sales and cultivate new, enthusiastic collectors is unrivaled in the field. If you are interested in receiving a valuation, selling your Editions with us or would like some advice on growing your collection, please be in touch. Consignment deadlines are two months prior to a sale.
