How to buy

Buying at Auctions

It's easy to shop at! 

For 7/10 days before each auction, all lots that are for sale are displayed online and the preview is open to the public. Potential buyers are offered to examine the items, ask any questions to our specialists and be able to bid and buy on any lot. The status report of each work is available in each item file with a comprehensive description of the artists or objects.

 EstimatesThese estimates represent our opinion of the price range in which lots may be sold at auction. They are based on the comparative
 examination of artists and recent records of sales at public auctions of similar items. Consequently, auction prices may exceed estimates, or sometimes reach lower prices.

On the days of the auction, customers who intend to bid online must be registered as a customer and must provide all their details (their name, ID or passport, shipping address, etc.). In some cases, and provided that they are bidding on works worth 1,000 euros or more, they may be required to provide their credit card details as a guarantee. Once your registration is completed, you will be assigned your personal number to bid on during the sale. When the sale begins, each lot will be issued in numerical order as indicated in the catalogue and once the time is up, it will be awarded to the highest bidder. In the last 3 minutes, each bid made will be increased by 2 more minutes. If you become the winner of any lot, the system will indicate this to you.

At the moment the system finishes the bidding of each lot, the title is transferred to the new owner. All purchases are final and subject to the Terms of Purchase. The works are offered "as is", in the condition they are in and prices cannot be reduced if there is a failure. In some categories, and for purchases at Sorolla Arte, the authenticity of each lot will be made through a CERTIFICATE OF WARRANTY, which indicates that the work has been made by the author and is purchased at Sorolla art auctions. The deadline for returning the work is 14 days from the date of receipt. If the identification of the authorship is found to be substantially incorrect based on a fair reading of the description during this period, the purchase of said lot may be cancelled and the auction price plus the buyer's commission will be refunded.

You can make use of the withdrawal clause, in accordance with EU regulations on consumer rights (2011/83/EU) and Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007, of 16 November, which approves the revised text of the General Law for the Defence of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws. The E.C. grants Buyers the right to cancel and return any purchase made, provided that the Buyer does not purchase Lots professionally and the Buyer lives in a country within the EU. The right of withdrawal gives "Consumer" Purchasers a 14-day cooling-off period to decide whether they wish to keep their purchase. Within the cooling-off period, the Consumer can cancel their purchase without giving any reason for cancellation. The cooling-off period begins upon receipt of the work.
