Top 2021 Finds

Top 2021 Finds

We look forward to serving you in 2022—but first, a look back at some of the remarkable offerings of 2021.  

As we look forward to 2022 and providing services and holistic solutions to connect you to the global art market, we would be remiss not to reflect on 2021—an extraordinary year for Hindman and the passionate community of clients, collectors, dealers and everyone in between who supported the wide array of remarkable works brought to auction. 

Inspired by Smithsonian Magazine’s ‘Ninety-Nine Fascinating Finds Revealed in 2021,’ join us in celebrating a curated selection of Hindman’s Top 2021 Finds. As Smithsonian Magazine so aptly put it, “In a year dominated by disheartening news, including the Covid-19 pandemic and reminders of systemic racism, archaeological and cultural discoveries offered a welcome distraction. 2021 yielded an array of intriguing finds, particularly as lockdowns lifted and researchers returned to the field. Spanning disciplines, historical eras, geographic locations and cultures,” Hindman’s top 2021 finds ran the gamut of art historical interest. 

From Martin Wong’s milestone world auction recording-setting work, Persuit (El Que Gane Pierde – He Who Wins Looses, 1984, to The Henry Fitz Jr. Archive of Photographic History, which was only recently “rediscovered" after lying nearly 87 years in an unheated Peconic, Long Island shed, these were the most riveting finds of 2021.
