  • Recognized as the Midwest's leading fine art auctioneers, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers has built a worldwide reputation based on a full service approach to the auction business tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients. Coming from a variety of educational backgrounds, specialists bring years of experience to their particular area of collecting.

    In 1982, Leslie founded Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago, Illinois. Within a few years it grew to be the largest auction house in the Midwest and the fifth largest in the country. The company conducted many significant and highly publicized auctions, including memorabilia from the historic Comiskey Park, the Chicago Stadium, the Schwinn Family Bicycle Collection, as well as the personal property from such renowned estates as Arthur Rubloff, Mrs. Robert R. McCormick, the Potter Palmer families, and Dole heiress Elizabeth F. Cheney.

    In 1991, Leslie received international recognition for the discovery of a previously unknown still life by Vincent van Gogh. The painting sold for $1.43 million and the resulting publicity brought Leslie Hindman Auctioneers to the forefront of the world auction scene. As a result of her firm’s outstanding reputation, it was acquired by Sotheby’s in 1997.

    Leslie returned to the auction business in July 2003. Our regularly scheduled auctions feature American and European paintings, prints, drawings, furniture, decorative arts, jewelry, books and manuscripts, and carpets in addition to a variety of other collecting categories. Furthermore, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers provides a full range of services for trust and estate professionals.

    Since reopening, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers has handled property from the estates of Leo S. Guthman, Rose Movius Plamer, Melville N. Rothchild, Lillian Questiaux, Helen C. Tunison, Frank J. and Mary Mackey Jr., and Dr. Reid I. Martin among others. Additionally, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers has handled the Kenan Heise collection of books and manuscripts, property from the Akron Art Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Milwaukee Art Museum, timepieces from the collection of William and Susan Schroeder, the Kemper Insurance Companies corporate art collection, property from the collection of Kerry X. LeBre, sports memorabilia from the legendary Ernie Harwell, and the John Drury collection of A.C. Gilbert Erector Sets and Mysto Magic Sets.

    In September 2005, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers set a new auction record for Hungarian artist Jozsef Rippl-Ronai. The painting, Study for the Lady with a Birdcage, sold for $590,400 setting a world auction record for a Jozsef Rippl-Ronai painting, set the record for the highest price ever paid for a Hungarian artist in the United States, and is the third highest price ever paid for a Hungarian painting.

    The auction house’s main office is located at 1338 West Lake Street in Chicago's West Loop and in January 2010 they opened a second office in Naples, Florida at 1300 Third Street South.
