Founded in 2011 in Basel by Nicolas Beurret and Emmanuel Bailly, and later joined by Markus Schöb of Galerie Widmer, the auction house is also located in Zurich and St Gallen. It specialises in the sale of primarily modern and contemporary art. Artcurial Beurret Bailly Widmer will keep its current structure and operations and continue to hold its three annual physical and digital sales. Its next Fine Art sale will be held during Art Basel on 21st June in Basel. As part of this merger with Artcurial, the auction house is preparing several development projects over the next two years in Switzerland.
In 2022, Artcurial celebrated its 20th anniversary and recorded its best year since its creation. It consolidated its position as France’s leading auction house.
Recent changes in the Artcurial Group have enabled the company to remain responsive and to continue its development as the European leader in the intermediation of exceptional goods, with its various companies, namely John Taylor (luxury real estate) and Arqana (horse auction house). With three sales locations in Paris, Monaco and Marrakech and after the opening of offices in Belgium, Italy, Germany, Austria and Spain, Artcurial is now expanding into Switzerland with the acquisition of the Swiss-German auction house Beurret Bailly Widmer Auktionen.
