A Question of Style

For a whole week the Dorotheum is celebrating design and innovation, fashion and culture, upheaval and change! Be it photography, art nouveau, vintage style, modern and contemporary prints, design and classic cars, the next week is all about international flair and the finer things in life!

The week will commence with the photography auction on Monday, 13th June. The history of photography as well as photographs with their own stories will be on offer. Does this provide competition for painting? Expansion? Enrichment!

Monday, 13th June, 2016 – 2:00 p.m.


Next up, Art Nouveau objects will be on sale in the Art Nouveau and applied arts of the 20th century. The clear lines, simple colouring, and playful naiveté of the art fits perfectly with the vintage Chanel auction on Tuesday, 14th June.

Names by renowned artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Eduardo Chillida, Damien Hirst, Roy Lichtenstein, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Andy Warhol or Tom Wesselmann are offered in Dorotheum’s auction on 14th June.
