Scottish Art

Bonhams Scottish Art auctions offer a wide range of Scottish artists and movements, including 18th century works by Allan Ramsay and Henry Raeburn, through to The Glasgow Boys, The Scottish Colourists, The Edinburgh School, right up to modern artists such as Jack Vettriano. We hold auctions every May and October in Edinburgh.

As the only international auction house who holds dedicated Scottish Art auctions in Scotland, we have achieved exceptional results for works by Scottish Colourist artists such as S.J. Peploe and G.L. Hunter, and are the market leaders in selling works by Vettriano, with a 100% selling rate in recent years.
