Who We Are

California Art Auction is a service of John Moran Auctioneers, Inc, based in Pasadena, California. Since 1969, we have set the benchmark for service and market-driven results for our clients.

We have presented over 400 successful auctions over the past 48 years with over $300 million dollars in sales.

Clients from around the country come to Monrovia, CA to attend our auctions of California & American Paintings, held three times a year. We catalogue and sell 200-250 paintings per sale and routinely set new auction records for artists. In 2001, we were the first auction house to sell a work by a California artist for over the $1 million mark, an event that received national attention.

California & American Art is not our only passion: We offer complete estate services also. With our monthly Estate Auctions, you’ll find only the best silver, rugs, European artwork, jewelry, furniture, pottery & porcelain, art glass and high-quality accessories up for sale. These auctions feature over 400 lots per event and are very popular. Can’t join us in person?
