American Folk Art & Outsider Art

English | 繁體中文 | 简体中文

Christie’s has offered superb examples of American folk art since its first sales of Americana in 1979. Today the category has grown to include weathervanes, needlework samplers, portraits from the 17th to the 19th centuries, and objects once considered utilitarian or naïve.

Outsider art is an increasingly important area of today’s art world, with major museums continuing to establish collections and hold exhibitions to promote the field. In recent years, Christie’s has seen exceptional results in this category with artists such as Henry Darger, William Edmondson and Edward Hicks attracting a wide audience of collectors.

American Folk Art sales take place in January and September, in conjunction with sales of American furniture and decorative arts. Please do not hesitate to contact us for a free and confidential valuation or to discuss the market.
