NOTE OF CAUTION
Most auction houses now have a web enabled method for bidding online. If you're new to online auction be very careful when you first start bidding with online auctions. Purchase one or two low priced items to get used to the bidding process. Also, make sure that you know the auction rules and what your payment requirements are for successful bids. You might want to check on the estimated shipping costs, the auction house should be able to assist with this.

Interested in buying at Art Auctions, read Maynard Elliott's Ten Rules for Buying Art at Auctions. It provides information on how to successfully purchase and bid for fine art at auctions. The article was written several years ago so keep this in mind and make adjustments for current art auctions.

Greg Allen wrote an article for The New York Times, in 2006 and it's still worth reading:
Rule No. 1: Don't Yell, 'My Kid Could Do That'
