On March 11, 1744, Samuel Baker, founder of Sotheby's, held the first-ever sale under his own name. Over two centuries later, they became the first international art auction house to hold auctions online beginning in 2000. As their clients' needs and collecting tastes evolve, Sotheby's flexibility and unwavering focus on expertise and client service will remain their hallmarks into the 21st century.
