About Auction House In 1979, Antonio Climent Benaiges - a pioneer importer of antiques - and Juan Baldrich decided to establish an auction house that would become a sector benchmark. The name, Bal-cli-s is a neologism derived from the fusion of their family names. They were both attracted to a new and compelling business model that had taken root in England. Their budding auction house contributed to promoting and spreading an interest in art and in auctions among the general public. Balclis took on a key educational role laying the groundwork for greater transparency in the art market.
