PHILOSOPHY

We are committed to conducting auction sales and valuations in a principled way, with care, sensitivity and on the basis of observing complete client confidentiality.

The Magellan Centre’s cataloguing reflects appreciation of culturally rich, historical objects from all around the world and our experts’ understanding of them. Also, where possible and in relation to selected lots, it explores how different artistic styles and cultures have influenced one another often as a result of exploration, war and commerce.

By the provision of ongoing research leading to our experts’ catalogue descriptions, we make contributions within our capacities as a relatively small team of professionals, which helps open up fascinating history to all.
