Orientalist Art

Since establishing the first sale dedicated to Orientalist Art in 1998, Christie’s has led the field in this category and continues to realise record prices with auctions of 19th-century European art in London, Paris and New York. Works by artists such as Etienne Dinet, Jean-Léon Géröme and Gustav Bauernfeind that capture a uniquely European view of the East — from Cairo to Constantinople — increasingly attract a wide audience of collectors from emerging markets, demonstrating the timeless appeal of this aesthetic.

With specialists all over the world, Christie’s is dedicated to sourcing and selling the finest works of Orientalist art at auction and private sale. Please do not hesitate to contact us for a free and confidential valuation.
