Auction Catalogs

Auction catalogs can offer important provenance information on works of art. Oftentimes, catalogs will include illustrations or descriptions of the object as well. Below is a short list of institutions with substantial auction catalog collections, some of which have been digitized.

Tip: When searching for auction catalogs, it often helps to search the year, month, and day of the sale.
