Sotheby’s opened a first office in Monaco in 1967 and was the first international auction house to organize public sales in Monaco. Many sales were held in then until the opening of the art market in France, ending 400-year monopoly of French auctioneers.
Since 2001, Sotheby’s Monaco’s team, directed by Mark Armstrong, keep forging special ties with Monegasque collectors by including works from their collection in major international sessions in Paris, London, Geneva, Hong Kong and New York.

On the occasion of Monaco Art Week, Sotheby’s is happy to present its first private "pop-up" sales area.

The exhibition space will present a constantly updated selection of important works of modern and contemporary art, among the best examples offered by Sotheby's around the world. The first exhibition will feature a selection of works by major artists such as Picasso, Picabia, Braque, Renoir, Léger, Matisse, Nolde and Twombly, mixed with those by modern Italian masters of Fontana, Boetti and Burri.

Alongside will be shown designer luxury pieces, all available for immediate purchase. Thus, amateurs will be able to discover the creations of the British master jeweler Glenn Spiro, a selection of Audemars Piguet watches dating from the 1990s and 2000s, as well as handbags signed by the biggest brands of luxury products such as Chanel, Dior or Hermès and its iconic "Birkin" and "Kelly" models.
