Art Collecting

Good collections can not only showcase distinct aesthetics but also comprise seminal artworks that define a movement or an artist’s career. Great collections introduce entirely new value as a whole, establishing fresh connections and narratives. Navigating the intricate dynamics of the art world, cultivating relationships with artists and curators, selecting artworks and negotiating with galleries require in-depth knowledge of art, the market and an extensive network.
