Located on the Upper East Side of New York City since 2007, Shapiro Auctions is a boutique art business with global reach specializing in maximizing sale proceeds for our clients through auction and private treaty sales. While we are known internationally for our specialized expertise and connoisseurship across collecting categories, Shapiro Auctions has earned a particularly strong reputation in the rarefied collecting categories of Russian and European fine & decorative arts. Testament to this expertise are the many world auction records set for artists and collecting categories within Russian art and antiques. Shapiro Auctions also provides fine and decorative art appraisals according to the highest standards as acknowledged by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). We provide a full range of appraisal including values for Fair Market Value, Insurance, Estate Purposes, Charitable Donations and Loan Collateral. Shapiro Auctions LLC is a licensed and bonded auction house and Gene Shapiro and Noah Kupferman are each licensed and bonded auctioneers in New York City.
