ATHENS – Founded in 1989 by Petros Vergos, in Athens, Greece, VERGOS Auctions is the country’s leading auction house specializing in fine arts and also in rare books, manuscripts, maps, and philhellenic items of Greek interest. Today, the company is managed by Petros’ son, Andreas, who leads a highly experienced team of Greek art and history specialists.
With more than 200 auctions and 70,000 works of art and other items sold, it is very difficult to find a name of a famous Greek artist of the 19th and 20th centuries which has not been listed in one of the numerous auctions that have been held over a period of nearly 35 years. Takis Vassilakis, Chryssa, Jannis Kounellis, Stephen Antonakos, Yannis Gaitis, Diamantis Diamantopoulos, Nikos Engonopoulos, Vlassis Caniaris, Makis Theofilaktopoulos, Thanos Tsingos, Fotis Kontoglou, Dimitris Mytaras, Pavlos, Jannis Spyropoulos, Theodoros Stamos, Panayiotis Tetsis, Giannis Tsarouhis, Costas Tsoclis, and Alecos Fassianos are only few of the renowned artists whose works have been successfully sold through VERGOS auctions.
Over the last years, Andreas successfully transformed the company into a dynamic, flexible, and technologically-advanced auction house placing Greek art in the global market. In addition to the live auctions taking place in Athens, online auctions are also held, making the participation process from any place in the world easier than ever before. It is no wonder why VERGOS Auctions has established a reputation as the ‘expert’ in Greek and Philhellenic art, widely supported by the trust of Greek art lovers, collectors, academic foundations, and cultural institutions from around the world.
“We are very proud that our client portfolio includes art collectors from all over the world. Through them, Greek art crosses the borders of our country and familiarizes a wider international audience with the great Hellenic culture and history,” said Andreas, Managing Director, VERGOS Auctions.
Moreover, VERGOS Auctions is committed to corporate social responsibility, with art as its main pillar. The company has successfully organized several charity auctions, raising significant funds for vulnerable groups and children, as well as promoting and preserving the Greek cultural heritage. Recently, the company organized three charity auctions for Cerebral Palsy Greece/Open Door, with more charity events scheduled for 2023 to support social causes.
