Yes! You should always apply do something that you want to do because if you don't you'll be limiting yourself in the present and the future. What you can also do is try to find someone that is at Sotheby's to conduct an informational interview with so that they can help you indirectly craft your cover letter for the application. The reason I say indirectly is that you don't want to outright say can you help me with this but if you can ask a person what you think would be good questions that would help glean insights for you on how to conduct that. Fun fact about informational interviews is that most people love to talk about themselves and what they do!
