Bukowskis (Auction House and Appraiser)

Bukowskis is a Scandinavian fine art and antique auction house based in Stockholm, Sweden, with offices in Helsinki, Gothenburg and Malmo and representatives all around Europe, USA and Asia.

It is the oldest salesroom for fine art in Scandinavia with a longstanding tradition of specialist knowledge, and offers hammer auctions, online auctions and Private Sales.

The hammer auctions are represented by the Classic Sales, the Modern Sales and the Contemporary Sales, each auction held twice a year, in the spring and autumn. The company also offers a range of specialist sales such as the Vintage Sale, the Eclectic Sale and estate and charity auctions.

The company also conducts a travelling valuation show offering advice and appraisals from their experts across Europe, and educational courses for collectors and investors looking to learn both theoretical and practical aspects of art and antique collecting.

History

Founded in 1870 by Polish nobleman Henryk Bukowski, Bukowskis have conducted the greatest auctions in Sweden for the past 140 years including the collection of King Charles XV in 1873 and the estate of Master director Ingmar Bergman in 2009.

During the 1920’s, Bukowskis enjoyed the sole right to sell the etchings of Anders Zorn. In fact etchings by Zorn were so valid that they were accepted as security for bankloans and "exchange rates" were noted at Bukowskis.
