About Catawiki's art auction (modern)

Generally thought to refer to art produced after the 1870’s, the genre of modern art covers a wide range of styles and techniques. Notable modern artists include Pablo Picasso, whose cubist paintings were partly influenced by artists such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Other well-known artists in the modern style include Henri Matisse and Edvard Munch. The genre of modern art is usually used to refer to those works of art which have been produced in a spirit of experimentation and a conscious rejection of existing artistic traditions. Recent modern artists include the British artist Tracey Emin, whose work, My Bed was featured in the 1999 Turner Prize exhibition in London. Such works are controversial and can be alienating to art-lovers with more traditional tastes. Nevertheless, modern artworks fetch high prices among collectors and enthusiasts.

Catawiki’s modern art auctions have also included a work by the Dutch painters, Herman Brood and Karel Appel, which sold for £8,818 and £13,636 respectively. Whether you have a highly sought after modern art masterpiece or your favourite work by a lesser known modern artist, Catawiki’s modern art auctions are the ideal place to sell your special objects.
