Matsart Auctioneers & Appraisers was established when owner Lucian Krief merged two older galleries in 2006. The conjoined auction gallery is located in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and specializes in the sale of Israeli and international art works. Currently, Matsart conducts four major live auctions a year and several smaller live auctions selling an average annual sum of $12,000,000. In 2013, Matsart broke records with the sale of a painting by an Italian-Jewish artist. The painting sold for $8.6 million, shattering the previous record of $1.2 million in 2010.
In addition to fine arts auctioning, Matsart also offers estate sale services. Because of their work ethic, persistence, loyalty, and honesty, Matsart Auctioneers' reputation has grown to an international presence. Since 2008, Matsart Auctioneers & Appraisers has conducted nearly 40 auctions. Matsart offers international buyers the chance to bid online through Invaluable.com. Although the auction house typically offers four major auctions a year, a total of ten auctions were conducted in 2014.
Matsart Auctioneers & Appraisers is owned by the famed Lucian Krief, who is assisted by Senior Director Stella Costa. Other staff members include department directors, auctioneers, and a curator. The staff provide excellent service to buyers and sellers, whether appraising, finding items for auction, or conducting sales.
Israeli and International auctions offered by Matsart Auctioneers include a wide variety of ethnic and traditional lots. Previous sales have included impressionist, modern, and contemporary art, Israeli fine art, Jewish art, special furniture, and more. Whatever the historical preference or ethnic taste, Matsart is likely to have something of interest for every buyer.
