The flagship of Art La Rosa Auction House is the sales dedicated to Sicilian art, for which an entire Department is devoted with the main purpose of promoting masterpieces from ancient and significant Sicilian homes in Italy and worldwide. The Department of Sicilian Art has a holistic approach in presenting to the public artworks produced in Sicily across various fields: painting, sculpture, Sicilian ceramics, majolica, antique Sicilian furniture, furnishings, mosaics, and everyday use objects that can enrich private or representative environments.
The presence of a Department entirely dedicated to Sicilian art auctions makes the Auction House a true point of reference for those who wish to acquire rare, or never-before-seen Sicilian works of art on the art market, as well as for those who own Sicilian artworks and aim to maximize their value by auctioning them. Art La Rosa auctions are not to be missed opportunities for enthusiasts and collectors looking for typical objects, extraordinary works that once belonged to great Sicilian collections.
The Department of Sicilian Art at Art La Rosa Auction House offers the Italian and international art market precious ceramics from Caltagirone, an ancient craft of the island, with original decorations and the most typical objects: traditional artistic pinecones, marvelous "Moorish heads" that have become true works of art, and the art and tradition of both the ancient cart masters and the puppeteers, originating from different areas of Sicily. Considerable interest is generated in the sales of Sicilian art by Sicilian antique objects and ancient Sicilian furniture, works that often come from private collections and are frequently unpublished.
In the realm of Sicilian art, considered a minor category of production until a few years ago, the real historical and artistic value is now being restored thanks to the skill of the shipwrights, cart makers, carvers, decorators, and painters who have been connected since the 19th century to the spirit and character of Sicilian tradition. Art La Rosa is the only Italian auction house based in Sicily, in Catania, and is highly specialized in Sicilian art. The experience and expertise of the professionals working at Art La Rosa Auction House are an added value for all lovers and collectors of Sicilian art. We offer qualified consultancy on how to expand or complete your collection with pieces of genuine artistic and cultural value.
