Artsy provides four easy ways to buy from galleries, institutions, and auction houses worldwide. If you’re looking at a work, check for a button that says “Bid,” “Buy now,” “Make offer,” or “Contact gallery” on the artwork page. If you don’t see a button, the work is no longer available for sale.
Bid at auction
A great way to find special works that are rare to the market is by bidding through Artsy’s online auctions. For each work listed in an auction on Artsy, you’ll find a price estimate that can help you guide your bidding. To learn more about bidding, read our guide.
