Who are we?

Auction.fr, the industry-leading site for discovering and participating in the best international auctions.

Art auctions around the world since 1998

Auction.fr was created by art lovers in 1998, in the early days of the digitalization of the art market.

The site allows you to dive into the world of auctions by offering you a selection of more than 1 million art and luxury items each year as offered by the most important auction houses in the world.

In 2020, Auction.fr joined the CPMultimedia Group, creator of Interencheres, the #1 auction site in France, to become the group's international branch.
