Capsule Auctions


Founded in 2017 in the heart of the Chelsea Arts District, Capsule stands as a wonderful example of New York City’s downtown auction house. Over several years, the team of professionals, under the leadership of Simon Baranoff and Nicholas Thorn, has turned the company into a hive of activity for top collectors, dealers, galleries, and institutions. As of today, the auction house has curated and co-curated more than 100 auction sales featuring a variety of rare and valuable items from notable collections, including the American painter Lowell Nesbitt and the American entrepreneur and music executive Seymour Stein. Auctioneers run their marketing campaigns with the help of digital and print outlets. By using the bidding platform CapsuleLive, Capsule is able to connect high-level sellers and buyers from across the globe, which makes it so attractive for new clients and partners.
