DescriptionIn 1805 Tristram B. Freeman opened an auction house with the desire to “cherish the arts in the new world.” Over 200 years later, Freeman’s is still committed to exceptional art and exceptional people. We believe in a unique standard of one-on-one service, where people are just as important as their possessions. As America’s oldest auction house, we have spent decades building relationships with a loyal, diverse and passionate group of collectors in Philadelphia and beyond.
We are well known for our success with the Pennsylvania Impressionist artists, selling more works by these painters than any other leading auction house at world-record prices. Additionally, Freeman’s has been entrusted with the sale of some of the world’s most fascinating collections, including the Richard Scrushy Collection, The Lehman Brothers Collection, the Estate of Janet Brown and the Collection of H. Richard Dietrich, Jr.
Freeman’s holds more than 25 auctions a year in the following categories: 20th Century Design; American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionists; American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts; Asian Arts; Books, Maps & Manuscripts; English & Continental Furniture & Decorative Arts; European Art & Old Masters; Jewelry & Watches; Modern & Contemporary Art; and Silver & Objets de Vertu.
Freeman’s offers department internships throughout the year to provide hands-on experience and an in depth understanding of the fast-paced nature of the auction business.
The duration and start time of these internships vary, depending on the needs of the department to which you are applying. In general, internships last approximately four months or the duration of one school semester. Internships are open to students currently enrolled in college (either undergrad or graduate programs), or recent graduates looking to expand their experience.
Those who are eligible to receive academic credit must provide written confirmation on university letterhead at the start of their internship. Freeman's will work with universities directly to provide the appropriate documentation needed in order to receive credit. There is no salary or stipend available for interns at Freeman's, nor is there any guarantee of employment once an internship is complete.
The departments and areas of specializations are as follows:
• Furniture & Decorative Arts; American, British, European and 20th Century Design
• Asian Arts
• Modern & Contemporary Art
• Fine Art: American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionist Paintings, Old Master & European Paintings
• Jewelry & Watches

When submitting your application, you must include your department(s) of interest in your cover letter.
