Suitable items
Modern and Contemporary Art

At Catawiki we want to ensure that the items in our auctions reflect the unique, harder to find objects of value that bidders are looking for.

This is why we have set per category a minimum estimated value a lot should achieve in auction in order to be admitted.

During lot evaluation our in-house Experts carefully review and select admittable items, considering various aspects and product characteristics that determine the quality and influence the value an item is expected to sell for in our auctions.


For our Modern & Contemporary Art auctions, we’re looking for works of art from 1945 up to today, specifically:

  • Paintings & Mixed Media
  • Prints & Limited Editions
  • Sculptures & 3D objects
  • These artworks should: 
  • Be in good condition
  • Have a minimum value of €100
  • Have the necessary paperwork and provenance (secondary market)
  • Have shipping costs proportionate to the object’s value

If you need any extra guidance regarding our acceptance criteria, please find the submission guidelines attached below.
