American Folk Art and Outsider Art

English | 繁體中文

Christie's has offered superb examples of American Folk Art since its first sales of Americana in 1979. In recent years, Christie's sales have grown exponentially and have attracted an international collecting audience. Weathervanes, needlework samplers, portraits from the 17th to the 19th centuries, and objects once considered utilitarian or naïve, are the focus of aggressive collecting and serious scholarship.

American Folk Art sales take place in January and September in conjunction with sales of American Furniture and Decorative Arts.

Outsider Art is an increasingly important area of today’s art world, and major museums internationally are establishing collections and holding exhibitions to promote the field. In recent years, Christie’s has focused on bringing Outsider Art to our sale roster, earning exceptional prices and introducing the material to collectors worldwide.
