Works of Art
Sale by Negotiation
Just over a week has passed since we hung the last painting for our Works of Art auction and our country took the brave collective action to stay home and protect one another. Our thoughts have been with you as you have settle into life at home.
We’ve been reflecting on art’s ability to inspire and are pleased to announce that a presentation from our Works of Art catalogue is now available for sale by negotiation. The deadline for negotiations is 6pm Tuesday 14 April 2020.
Offers can be placed as absentee bids through our website here or by contacting one of our specialist team below.
We have captured the magic of the exhibition in video. The above video will take you to a virtual walkthrough of the works installed at Webb’s gallery. Additional images and condition reports are available for all the works featured in the catalogue. Our team of specialists is available to answer any questions and provide more information.
The catalogue is a rigorous offering of important modern and contemporary New Zealand artworks and international photography. It includes a selection of works from the collection of noted Wellington collectors Tim & Helen Beaglehole.
We hope you are enjoying new found time with loved ones, cherishing the collections that fill your homes and most importantly, staying in touch, staying safe and staying local.
- The negotiation process will be conducted in a similar manner to an auction.
- Interested parties will need to submit an initial offer before 6pm April 14th.
- Once all offers have been received, parties interested in a respective lot will then be made aware of the highest offered price on that lot and whether or not they are the leading bidder.
- Parties who are not the leading bidder will be given the opportunity to improve their bid so that it exceeds the highest offered price.
- If the highest offer is then exceeded, all interested parties will be notified and given the opportunity to increase their bid again.
- This process will be repeated until no other parties wish to improve upon the highest offer or the highest bid is confirmed at the conclusion of the sale.
- At this point the work will be sold to the party with the highest bid.
- The sale will be conducted under Webb’s usual terms and conditions, which can be viewed in full here.
- As per our terms and conditions, all transactions will incur a buyer’s premium of 17.5% of the hammer price plus GST. For example, the purchase of an artwork for a price of $1,000 would see the buyer invoiced for a total of $1,201.25.
- The buyer accepts that they will not be able to take possession of any artworks until level 4 quarantine has concluded.
