Sotheby'sFounded in 1774, Sotheby's is the world’s oldest art auction house. Sales today command record sums for items. Notable sales range from 'Danseuse au Repos' (Degas’ pastel of a ballet dancer) which set the world record for an artist at auction with a price of £17,601,500 ($27,930,020), to John Lennon’s Gallotone ‘Champion’ acoustic guitar which sold for £155,500 ($251,700) at a Rock'n'Roll memorabilia sale. Do bear in mind however that over 80% of the lots sell for under £3000 so even if you just go to watch, it's easy to get caught up in the bidding and overspend.
