In fact, the most important auctions houses often exhibit a selection of artworks that is comparable to the most important exhibitions held by the most respected Art museums.

The two most important auction houses in the world are Sotheby's (founded 1744) and Christie' (founded 1766), both having offices in Europe, America, Asia and Australia. Today, Sotheby's and Christie's control more than 90% of the world's art auctions.
