African & Oceanic Art

Since the department was founded in the 1960s Christie’s has sold some of the finest works of African and Oceanic Art seen on the market, including highly prized sculptures and masks from sub-Saharan Africa, Polynesia, Melanesia, Indonesia and Australia.

As constant innovators in our field, we offer collectors a passionate and academic approach to buying and selling art in this category, leading to exceptional results and world-record prices. Dedicated African & Oceanic Art sales are held biannually in Paris, in April and October, alongside thematic and single-owner sales held in both New York and Paris. Our Evolution of Form auction takes place in May during 20th Century Week in New York alongside our sales of Post-War & Contemporary Art and Impressionists & Modern Art.
