Hindman is one of the nation’s leading fine art auction houses. With an unyielding focus on client service, Hindman offers holistic solutions to connect clients in local US cities to the global art market. Hindman operates more salerooms in the United States than any other auction house and conducts over 100 auctions a year in categories such as fine jewelry, fine art, modern design, fine books and manuscripts, furniture, decorative arts, couture, Asian works of art, arts of the American west, numismatics, and more.

Headquartered in Chicago, Hindman is home to 150 employees, with additional offices in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Milwaukee, Naples, Palm Beach, Scottsdale and St. Louis.

Recognized for providing exceptional customer service, Hindman regularly handles significant estates from around the country including collections from Oprah Winfrey, Leona Helmsley, John Belushi, David Stickelber, Lily Pulitzer, Arthur Rubloff, Mrs Robert R McCormick, the Potter Palmer families, Reid I Martin, and many others.

In 1982, Leslie Hindman founded Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago, Illinois, and within a few years it grew to be the largest auction house in the Midwest, and one of largest in the country. As a result of the firm’s outstanding reputation, it was acquired by Sotheby’s in 1997. When the opportunity presented itself, Leslie reopened Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in 2003 and continued her growth trajectory.

Also part of the Hindman family of auction houses, Cowan’s Auctions was opened in 1995 by Wes Cowan in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cowan’s quickly earned a reputation for integrity, customer service and great results. In 2018, these two firms became the foundation for Hindman, a rapidly growing organization with the ambition to be the nation’s most client-centric auction house.
