For more than thirty years, Tajan has been the unmissable event for art collectors and art lovers. Today, with more than sixty auctions a year, a collection of many records and a regional and international development, Tajan is amongst the biggest French auction sales houses.

We organize whole collections auction sales and thematic auctions. This generalist position allows them to cover over twenty art market specialties. Their expertise is recognized in many fields, such as Decorative Arts from the 20th century, Design, 1850-1950 Sculpture, Jewellery and Watches, Modern Art, Paintings and Old Drawings, the Haute Epoque and Ceramic, Aisian and Eastern Art.

Meanwhile, Tajan was one of the first auction sales houses to take up the challenge of more specific and detailed auctions.

Tajan stands out with its international management methods, which offer customers an unequalled responsiveness and flexibility on the market, and with its voluntary approach for supporting the art market through events held every year in its Espace: “L’Artiste et ceux qui le soutiennent” (The Artist and those supporting them”), “Art et Design sans frontières” (Art and Design without borders)

For many years, Tajan has strengthened its global presence. Thanks to the opening of its online auction platform and organization of 100% digital, wider public auction sales, the auction house positions itself as one of the most dynamic players on the online art market.
