Stephan Welz & Co
Following the success of the Stephan Welz & Co. Cape Town Premier sale, our staff and specialists are hard at work preparing for the upcoming Premier Online Auction, taking place on the 23rd and 24th March.
The March sale features pieces from sought-after artists which our collectors have come to expect from Stephan Welz & Co., while remaining accessible to the average auction-goer and appealing to a more diverse collector base. Whether you are looking for a contemporary piece or a work by an old master, we are proud to be presenting works by artists from Norman Catherine to Helen Sebidi and J.H. Pierneef. We are looking forward to providing clients with an auction experience which combines a long-standing reputation with forward-thinking online bidding solutions.
Stephan Welz & Co. has seen an unprecedented increase in sales of contemporary works on our auctions, with many hammer prices surging above their high estimates. This represents a shift in the current market, not only towards a more contemporary aesthetic, but also indicates the diversification of buying pools, with younger collectors starting to make their mark on the auction world. We are looking forward to working closely with contemporary collectors, artists and exhibitors to take this art category from strength to strength, particularly as participation in online transactions increases and matures.
Despite the continued challenges associated with Covid-19, Stephan Welz & Co. has embraced our new circumstances, continuing with hybrid auction models and ensuring that consignment, valuation and buying on auction is convenient, safe and accessible from the comfort of your home. With over fifty years of experience, Stephan Welz & Co. maintains our commitment to knowledge, transparency and discretion. Our expertise spans multiple categories, and our specialists are excited to find new ways to interact with loyal and prospective clients throughout the year, starting with the launch of our cross-country valuation sweeps, where we will be hosting various valuation days in major cities across South Africa.
Whether you have a collection of old masters, a portfolio of contemporary works, would like expert advice on procuring or selling investment pieces, or if you are simply curious about the value of your items, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to find out when we will be nearest to you. In addition to our valuation sweeps, both our Johannesburg and Cape Town branches are actively consigning for upcoming auctions.
