Sotheby’s has been uniting collectors with world-class works of art since 1744. Every year, Sotheby’s auctioneers offer their services for charity auctions across the world, with more than £100 million raised with the help of Sotheby’s London team since 2012 alone. Sotheby’s has previously sold Contemporary works benefitting charities including (Red), WWF, ArtAngel, Whitechapel, NSPCC, BFAMI, Koestler Trust, Serpentine Gallery, Parasol Unit, Human Rights Watch, Peer Gallery, The Legacy List, Aortic Centre Trust and the ICA.
In allowing Fine Cell Work to sell these works privately, Sotheby's are ensuring that all proceeds from Human Touch will go directly to the charity.
