Prints & Drawings

Swann Galleries is the premier American venue for Old Master prints, selling more than any other U.S. house. The department, led by Vice President Todd Weyman, has set countless auction records for important American and European prints spanning five centuries, and our sales feature the most comprehensive offering of quality works for new and seasoned collectors alike.

Top sales include Egon Schiele's watercolor Schlafender Mann for $905,000 in September 2015; James A. M. Whistler's Nocturne, for $282,000 in October 2010, still the record price for a Whistler print sold at auction; $173,000 in October 2013 for Albrecht Dürer's St. Jerome in His Study. In November 2017, we achieved the record for any print by Edward Hopper: $317,000 for The Lonely House. The department holds the top four records for any print by Martin Lewis.

Private collections we have offered include Camille Pissarro: Impressionist Icon, 2016; A Collector's Vision: Works on Paper from the Belle Époque and Beyond, 2016; and American Prints from a Private Collection, 2015.

We accept quality consignments of Old Master through Modern prints, drawings, sculptures and paintings valued at approximately $1,500 and higher, by artists such as Mary Cassatt, Sonia Delaunay, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Giovanni B. Piranesi and Rembrandt van Rijn.
