Auction > Introduction

Haus Gallery is the first Estonian auction house successfully operating since 1997

Auctions are held twice a year: at the end of April and in October. The gallery also organizes special auctions (dedicated to one artist, period etc) and has helped set up charity art auctions in support of the Tallinn Children’s Hospital.
Haus Gallery art auctions concentrate on Estonian painting tradition and classics of modern art. Usually the selected works originate from the second half of the 19th century up until early 2000s.

The auction is preceeded by an exhibition of all the works included in the auction selection, lasting about two to three weeks. A catalogue that presents longer explanatory texts of all works is issued with high quality print photos. Before the auction, specialists of the Estonian Art Museum give expert evaluations that prove authorship for all of the works. If necessary we restore and re-frame the works. All works have a starting price and in order to participate in the bidding, we require registration.

Haus Galley auctions are known by our consistently strong selection of works. Besides art historical gems we have always sought out a work by a forgotten author or a work which has just recently been discovered.
