Freeman’s is America’s oldest auction house, founded in Philadelphia in 1805 by Tristam Bampfylde Freeman. Now in its sixth generation of continuous family ownership, Freeman’s holds two ‘Fine American & European Painting & Sculpture’ auctions annually, along with two ‘Modern & Contemporary’ art auctions annually. Each of these auctions features an eclectic array of noteworthy American and European artworks. Freeman’s shares an important strategic partnership with Scotland’s fastest growing auctioneer, Lyon & Turnbull. This strategic alliance has enabled Freeman’s to vastly increase its client base and to gain market share on both sides of the Atlantic.

Under the stewardship of Vice-Chairman Alasdair Nichol, who joined the firm in 1999, Freeman’s has not only established itself as a major player in the auction field, but is widely considered as one of the leading auctioneers of the New Hope, Pennsylvania School of painters, and have achieved world record prices in that field for paintings by artists such as Fern Coppedge, Antonio Martino, Roy Nuse and others. Additionally, Freeman’s regularly sells significant artworks by numerous American artists, as well as a large number of European artworks ranging from the 16th century to the present.
