The consignment process is simple:
Are you moving and unsure of what to do with all the objects you won’t be using in the future?
Are you in need of cash and own objects that might help you solve your current situation?
Or have your tastes simply changed, and you wish to renovate your living room, a lamp, the artwork on your walls?
At Morton Subastas we have specialized departments where we can receive, evaluate, and catalogue your items. Afterwards, we will also be able to market them, promote them, and place them in a catalogue for upcoming auctions. Our different departments include:
Modern and Contemporary Art: We are proud of being custodians of the some of the most important works of art created by illustrious artists from both the Mexican and international art world. We have witnessed priceless pieces come and go through our auction rooms, from paintings, sculptures, mixed technique pieces, to videos and art installations. Above all, we pride ourselves on helping these extraordinary works of art find new homes, new stories, and new owners who will treasure them for years to come.
Prints and Multiples: This department offers engravings, woodcuts, lithographs, screen prints, and even offset printing that reflects the progression of Western artistic trends. All of them are born from the same premise: to transfer the image created by an artist to a new form of representation, both at once original and exclusive.
