The 1837 Vision Art & Artist-Centric Auctions

  • We are fully transparent about what we charge our clients and the artists we represent. We are the only auction house in Chicago to offer a sliding scale commission where 0% is our lowest rate. This allows all parties to split the burden of the costs associated to the sale of art between the artist, the auction house and the collector.  We implemented this approach in order to keep it all about the art.

  • We believe so strongly in our artists that we are willing to give up a major portion of our commission in order to help enable art creation full time. Our approach differs from other auction houses in the way that we consign a wider variety of creations. Many times works are neglected from galleries and auctions but nonetheless exciting originals that deserve exposure. Commonly these are smaller less expensive works allowing buyers from many socioeconomic backgrounds to bid and win on a beloved artist’s work.

  • Our auctions are always in the artists best interest and the collectors as well. Essentially a fiduciary, we use the auction method to publicize and make transparent realized prices for works sold.

    We never take possession of an artist’s work and provide all of the necessary services to list at our auctions free of charge. Nothing has to move from studio to gallery creating a zero risk auction experience. We believe a constant revenue stream of risk free auction selling for the artist will promote the art world by allowing creators freedom to think about their cash second and art first.
