Dorotheum - Buy Art


Antiques Buy Art

If you are looking to buy art, this is the place to go. The Dorotheum Palace is not only exquisite to visit and stroll around, it has attracted art collectors and connoisseurs from the whole world for over past 300 years.

Austrians consider the Dorotheum as important and well known as the Sachertorte, or the St. Stephan's Cathedral - it is part of their identity and strongly intertwined with their tradition - auctions and pawnshops are part of local culture here.

The Dorotheum hosts over 600 auctions a year - and all of them are public so you can visit and experience them. This unique atmosphere will make your visit to Vienna really memorable.

What can you see and buy in the Dorotheum? Quick answer - everything! You will find unique paintings, antiques, jewellery, furniture, design pieces and many other works of art from various centuries. As we mentioned, you will be able to attend either the regular exhibitions or the seasonal auctions ....check their site for more information.

The Auction Weeks are especially attractive. They take place several times a year and are mentioned in our Events Section. The atmosphere here is exciting, the pieces to be auctioned are of high significance and value. This is the time when art lovers from all over the world are in town to bid. Honestly, how often are people able to experience important seasonal auctions in such an outstanding setting? You will only find this here in Vienna.

The Dorotheum Palais auctions offer more than 40 categories, (ranging from Old Masters to 19th century, Modern and Contemporary Works of Art to jewellery, porcelain, silver and glass). The pieces auctioned here are exquisite, in 2010 a world record price was reached for the painting 'Man between virtue and vice,' by Frans Francken II at € 7.02 million.

In the Retail Shop or Gallery you do not need to attend auctions, but you can buy art and collectors items, jewellery or watches in several retail branch offices that are scattered around the city. Today the Dorotheum is known as Austria's largest retailer of jewellery and you are sure to find an excellent selection of pieces here - at really affordable prices and quality.
